Legislative corruption and the end of the Taxi industry in Wisconsin

Content and website operations for 2018 was made possible by a donation from Robert Williams of Madison Wisconsin.   It may seem strange that nether Uber or Lyft raised any protest or so much as spoke out in public hearings over recently announced legislation to deregulate the taxi Industry in Wisconsin. After all, the legislators presenting these bills (AB918 & SB759) Like state Assembly representative Daniel Knodl and state senator Stephen Nass have been very outspoken in claims that these bills would return a “level playing field” and “fair trade” to the…

Petition to London TFL, KEEP the Uber ban *Sign, Share and LIKE*

Texas returns felon rideshare drivers to the streets of Austin.

In May of 2016 Austin city government had had enough of numerous convicted felons operating for Uber and Lyft on city streets, assaults on citizens by rideshare drivers and the uninsured wrecks caused by rideshare drivers.   A simple requirement was proposed by the city council for all Rideshare drivers operating in Austin to be approved through actual fingerprint background checks and to provide proof that appropriate insurance measures were taken to provide proper coverage for customers. Despite Uber and Lyft spending millions to block the legislation, it was passed…

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…

Madison, WI Uber driver’s racially ignorant harassment of a passenger

A resident and facebook friend in my home city of Madison just hours ago had a scrape with their rideshare driver. This friend is of mixed racial origin and the driver felt like commenting on this. Since it was a Sunday and there was no surge activity, this person had waited just over an HOUR for their Uber to arrive.  This person lives downtown well inside Uber’s preferred pickup area for Madison. Since this person had mentioned ‘cab’ and I regularly advise cab companies on complaints sent to our facebook…

Uninsured Uber vehicles STILL operating in the UK

This latest Uninsured Uber comes to us from Brighton UK. On the 14th this vehicle was seized by police and towed after it had caused an uninsured wreck. The vehicle’s registration gives no indication of commercial use and of course no compensation from the driver’s own insurance OR Uber was made for the wreck since the driver had not properly informed their own insurance company OR the motor vehicle authority for their area that the vehicle was being used for commercial purposes.

PSA to Madison area Businesses and General Public: UNINSURED/convicted felons/sex offenders driving Uber & Lyft in your area.

For just over three years now, we have been compiling a license plate list of Uber and Lyft drivers in Madison Wisconsin and the surrounding areas. Since we have found that drivers with both companies can and do register with false information and are also allowed to drive with criminal records, we wanted to see just how many there were in the Madison area who do not meet the claims of Lyft and Uber for keeping convicted felons from driving for them. Through publicly available information we have acquired the…
