Another Uber driver assaults a customer in Wisconsin

Like most states in the US that have rideshare regulations, the laws concerning the insurance and background checks on the drivers are virtually unregulated.

Convicted felons and sex offenders continue to show up operating as Uber and Lyft drivers through out the state and it is no longer a question of…

Wisconsin Eye Reports on Press conference at the state capital concerning rideshares and proposed legislation

Ride Safe World would like to thank and congratulate Wisconsin Eye for being the ONE AND ONLY media outlet to properly cover and report on Thursday’s press conference at the capital. Full Video: http://www.wiseye.org/Video-Archive/Event-Detail/evhdid/11778 Rather than make a convoluted and vague series of nonsensical arguments about the facts presented or the issues at hand, Wisconsin Eye did their jobs as journalists by getting the facts and only the facts to the public.

Open letter to 89.9FM WORT Madison, you have turned your back on Madison and owe this community a retraction

Unsurprisingly the two major news outlets in Madison white washed evidence we had presented at the capital news conference today (8-24-2017).   ABC:   http://ridesafeworld.com/wkow-abc-channel-27-abc-affiliate-in-madison-covers-a-small-portion-of-ride-safes-presentation-on-sex-offenders-operating-for-uber-and-lyft/   NBC:   http://ridesafeworld.com/statement-concerning-nbc-15s-madison-nbc-affiliate-treatment-of-news-pertaining-to-the-number-of-sex-offenders-currently-found-driving-in-madison-wi-for-uber-and-lyft/     They shredded the evidence and told the story Uber wanted them to tell in order to make the facts obscure and speculative.  Allowing Uber to continue to profit from endangering the general public and destroying labor ethics through out the state.   THREE CONVICTED SEX OFFENDERS are driving for Uber and Lyft in the state capital right now.  NONE…

WKOW ABC Channel 27 (ABC affiliate) in Madison covers a small portion of Ride Safe’s presentation on sex offenders operating for Uber and lyft.

Nick Buffo covered today’s (8/24/2017) press conference at the Wisconsin state capital. http://www.wkow.com/story/36213610/2017/08/24/multiple-taxicab-associations-show-support-for-proposed-bills-regulating-ride-sharing-companies    Though the ABC affiliate did a slightly better job of reporting on the subject than their NBC counterpart, they ignored the evidence presented in favor of a speculative offering of the events. Much Like NBC 15’s Saira Anwer in her segment on the press conference, ABC also refused to offer any factual points about the event or warn the general public of convicted sex offenders found CURRENTLY operating for Uber and Lyft in Madison, Wisconsin.
