Ride-Sharing: Why do they want to be excused from the law?

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

[The following is a paid advertisement.]

Would you choose to ride with a driver who never received a proper background check or a drug test, in a car that is not properly insured?

Would you let your son or daughter ride with a driver whose background is unknown and who could be a criminal, like in a recent investigation by NBC 5 Chicago?

Why do ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft continue to fight the same public safety protections required of any other car service? Is it because these protections cut into their financial bottom line?

Is the fact that they force their passengers to pay a so-called “safety fee” and sign a waiver agreeing to use their service “at your own risk” because they are worried who their drivers are?

There’s a reason why the media is asking “Why Is Uber Charging You Extra to Not Get Assaulted?”

Ask Uber and Lyft why they think they should be excused from the law.

Vote YES on HB 4075 and support common sense public safety protections for all.
