Celeb Limo Co. Ready to Roll ... Cameras

7/12/2008 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the biggest limo companies in New York City videotapes its celeb passengers -- including, we're told, Britney Spears -- and they've got hours of tapes of stuff those celebs probably wouldn't want you to see.

Our spies say the wife of a driver who was recently fired has called around to some of her hubby's famous clients, blowing the whistle. We hear some of those celebs are, in a word, outraged.

Ready to Roll acknowledges the taping to TMZ, but claims a light goes on when the camera rolls. And, of course, after a six-hour flight, everyone's looking for a little light.

Now here's the really scary part. The company wouldn't say if it records audio as well. Think about those phone calls, all you celebs.

The company wouldn't discuss the fired driver, saying that it's a "legal matter." The owner of the company tells TMZ that the allegation is "untrue."

I don't have a problem with the celebrity's TMZs "stalks" as you say, because they go to well known celebrity hangouts and areas where the celebritys KNOW they will be "stalked"! out in the open, no sneaking around necessary!
That is very different then someone hiding the fact they are taping/filming !

Oh really?How about when Jamie lynn Spears went to Mississippi to have her baby,and there were guys hiding in bushes,was she at a celebrity hangout?Or how about the 20 stalkers who stay outside Britney's house 24/7?Or Heath Ledgers ex after he died,30 stalkers snapping her picture.Call it whatever you want,i call that stalking.

I feel that someone has to come to the defense of Ready to Roll and Ms. Ricketts.I also work for a NYC limo company that uses "DRIVECAM" If TMZ was really interested in the true use of these cameras, they would contact Drivecam in San Diego and find out how they work. The camers only come on if the driver makes a hard turn, hard braking or involved in an accident. And it only records for 12 seconds - 8 seconds before the evnt and four seconds after. Before you smear someone, GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.

Don't believe everything you read!!

I've been a customer of RTR for 12 years and have never received anything but top shelf professional service.

There are two types of people: creators and destroyers. TMZ is nothing but a bunch of LOSER DESTROYERS ... setting about to destroy people's lives, privacy and livlihood. You are completely irresponsible to print these LIES. How do you people live with yourselves? I can't imagine profiting off the pain and suffering of others. You are hideous human beings ... in fact ... you barely qualify as human beings.

KARMA BABY ... KARMA. I hope everyone on your payroll gets back 1,000 fold what you dish out in lies, pain and suffering.

I am a repeat customer of Ready to Roll and will most assuredly continue to be so. Ready To Roll is a professional, legitimate limosine service. They have devoted celebrity and business clients who KNOW that this is nonsense! Their clients are used to being stalked and lied about, so they will have no trouble recognizing the truth.

It's not hard to see that the wife of a fired employee is certainly not a believable source. It's also easy to see that there are NO Private Videos being circulated!

I must respond to this injustice because Ready To Roll and the owner of this company are fine examples of what is right about America. Keep the limos ready, your loyal customers look forward to working again with you and your excellent staff!!! From the person who takes your call to the driver who safely and discreetly delivers you to your destination ---

Thanks for being a CLASS ACT!!

PS. Ignore the haters.
