Who’s driving your Uber or Lyft? Besides a name in the app, you probably don’t know. Now, more than ever, that’s a huge safety concern.
The Fault in the System
Recently, the Washington Post opened an investigation into Uber and Lyft and their driver behavior practices. It turns out that Uber, at least, uses a three-strike system. But, unfortunately, three strikes for a driver don’t automatically mean they are taken off the road…
A system like this should work, but Uber and Lyft will always protect the company first. They want to mitigate liability above all else. This means driver misbehavior is usually not reported to law enforcement or investigated past the initial report. In some cases, drivers with three strikes could continue to drive as long as they were bringing in revenue.
In fact, even when a driver is removed, this information isn’t shared with the police. A driver who has been removed from Uber due to severe misconduct can immediately begin driving for Lyft with no repercussions because agents are not allowed to communicate this information with external entities.
This system simply doesn’t work, because Uber and Lyft work to protect their own interests before they protect their riders.
