Another Uber driver assaults a customer in Wisconsin

Like most states in the US that have rideshare regulations, the laws concerning the insurance and background checks on the drivers are virtually unregulated. This week a man using Uber in Madison, Wisconsin was assaulted and robbed by his Uber driver and an accomplice.     Ride Safe AGAIN pleads with Wisconsin state legislators to improve the current rideshare regulations in the state. Convicted felons and sex offenders continue to show up operating as Uber and Lyft drivers through out the state and it is no longer a question of…

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…

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…

Madison Rideshare (Uber & Lyft) drivers behaving badly

The Truth about Ridesharing Larry Kaufmann Refuses to Tell You

I recently read Larry Kaufmann’s, The Politics of Ridesharing in the Isthmus. As a former cab driver in Madison, I take issue with many errors in his article. Using the Uber app for payments Firstly, Kaufmann claims that no money is changing hands between the passenger and driver using the Uber service. This deceptive talking point is often used by Uber’s own representatives to disguise the fraudulent nature of how Uber really does business. While paper cash is not used in the transaction, money is being transferred directly from the customer’s debit or…
