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.

To that end progress was made during a phone cal between myself and Gary today covering the possibilities, countermeasures and…
