Letter from the editor, never stop resisting fraud, hate and ignorance, never give up on America

These last five years have been the longest, most costly and most embattled, I have ever endured while dealing with the fraud being spread by the “gig” economy. But my own losses are hardly as costly as they have been to many who are out there right now trying to make a living in a market saturated with fraud that is now considered fair business practice. In my previous work exposing pyramid scams like MCA or child pornographers like Brian Cartmell, the work had been easy, though never truly rewarding. 50…

Ride Safe’s commercial transportation regulation/deregulation template

When regulating or deregulating a transportation industry be it air travel, boat, train, rideshare, limo, bus or Taxi, government bodies have often over stepped deregulation or insufficiently amended regulations. The best example of the disaster that this can cause would be the recent city wide taxi deregulation in El Paso Texas which has left the citie’s taxi providers in a market of complete chaos.

NY Mayor Bill de Blasio agrees with Ride Safe, calls for stricter regulation of Uber and other Rideshares

As we at ride safe have been telling everyone since 2014: 1- Rideshare drivers making under minimum wage will cause a perfect storm of corporate welfare and economic disaster for the general public. 2- A mass increase in sexual assaults and uninsured wrecks caused by rideshare drivers who ARE NOT properly background checked or insured would become a major issue for the general public. 3-Selective service by Rideshare companies would only limit service to customers who have more need than those in commercial areas and the disabled. Now the mayor…

Editorial: ‘Japan Today’ author doesn’t know anything about Japan today.

A recent article in the English language online magazine ‘Japan Today’ reveals that neither the publication or the article’s author have an educated or respectable understanding of Japan itself. Link: https://japantoday.com/category/national/airbnb-uber-woes-show-japan-does-not-share-easily “This is partly due to confusion among the public about what the sharing economy is” -Quote Anne Beade, Japan Today If you know the Japanese, you know they ARE NOT “confused” about this.

Uber, Lyft, sexual assault, hush money, racism, judicial and political ignorance

A recent article on CNN money addressed the pandemic of sexual assaults caused by rideshare (Uber and Lyft) drivers and a plea by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) for Uber to change the customer TOS and litigation practices so the victims of these assaults can fairly litigate with Uber and/or their attackers.   Last week Megyn Kelly Today featured a series of Uber sexual assault victims on NBC. The legal representation for these victims, Jeanne M. Christensen of Wigdor LLP (attorneys at law) has requested of Uber to release the victims from the forced…

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi violating traffic laws for promo pic to announce more deceptive app changes

Uber’s latest big roll out announcement of app changes came as ominously as many others previous but this one was made to appear more hands on as Dara Khosrowshahi (Uber’s CEO) himself took to the wheel to test the new app. While driving a vehicle with illegal visual obstructions. Like with any announced update or change to the app, Uber drivers were feverishly expecting an increase in fares. Currently, after expenses and vehicle depreciation, the average Uber driver in the US makes less than $4.00usd an hour. The low standard…
