This is a Database of Incidents caused by Commercial drivers in the United States since 2014.

Since 2014:

The majority of assault incidents and Uninsured wrecks have been committed by UBER & LYFT drivers in the US. Leading with a 70% average of all reported incidents nation wide.

Deaths attributed to Uber and Lyft Drivers: 38 Confirmed

Sexual assaults attributed to Uber and Lyft drivers: 208 Confirmed

Physical assaults attributed to Uber and Lyft drivers:  73 Confirmed

Kidnappings attributed to Uber and Lyft drivers: 12 Confirmed

Uninsured wrecks attributed to Uber and Lyft drivers: 117 Confirmed

Because Uber, Lyft and laws governing rideshare/TNC operations DO NOT address proper insurance coverage for Rideshare/TNC drivers, it is very difficult to identify Rideshare drivers who wreck and do not properly notify authorities that they operating the vehicle as a Rideshare/TNC.  Rideshare drivers often tell customers to not speak to police or inform police that the vehicle is operating as a Rideshare.   

This means the number of uninsured wrecks attributed to rideshare/tnc operations is MUCH HIGHER than what is reported.

 

-Falsified Uber, Lyft, Taxi and Limo drivers make up the third largest contribution of assaults and uninsured wrecks in the US.

Deaths: 6 Confirmed

Sexual assaults: 12 Confirmed

Physical assaults:  23 Confirmed
