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.

Open Letter, Mending the fences

After the chaos that has reined since WATO (Wisconsin Association of Taxi Owners) and the state’s largest taxi provider TaxiMKE decided to ignore the majority of taxi providers in Wisconsin to side with legislation specifically designed to destroy the Taxi industry and endanger the public, I have been trying very hard to put some kind of relationship back together with WATO and their primary PR and legislative representative Gary Goyke.
