As reports of customers sexually assaulted by Uber and Lyft drivers continue to soar through out the world, both companies have offered only anecdotal and fraudulent solutions to the epidemic.
A channel 7 Boston investigative report found that Uber and Lyft are still not performing actual background checks or identity vetting on drivers, leading to numerous incidents of stolen identity and falsified driver accounts.
This is five years after Ride Safe and numerous other news agencies and transportation safety organizations found that Uber and Lyft were not properly performing actual background checks or verifying documents uploaded to their application process.
Ride Safe is making an inquiry to RAINN as to their knowledge of the Lyft driver vetting process and fraudulent TOS terms used by the company.
