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…

Ride Safe World’s Rideshare plate roundup, exposing convicted felons, uninsured drivers and sex offenders put on our streets by Uber and Lyft

  In 22 US states, it is now legal for rideshare companies to operate drivers with no actual insurance coverage, no valid background checks on drivers and no vehicle inspections. RIDESHARE COMPANIES ENDANGER THE GENERAL PUBLIC MORE THAN ANY OTHER FORM OF COMMERCIAL TRANSPORTATION TODAY. NOW, each and every month another series of uninsured wrecks, sexual assaults or thefts committed by rideshare drivers against rideshare customers and the general public are reported. A perfect example of the frequency of assaults committed by rideshare drivers to those committed by vetted Taxis: This…
