Incidents & Activity Involving Uber and Lyft

In 2015, Ride Responsibly™ was established by the National Limousine Association to raise awareness and advocate for safer ground transportation for both passengers and drivers.

Ride Responsibly® and our member limousine providers encourages you to Think Before You App®.

All ground transportation service providers are not held to the same regulatory, safety and employment standards. Licensed Limousine Providers are held to a higher standard.  Therefore, Ride Responsibly’s mission is to highlight the crimes, rapes, sexual assaults, abuse, users data breaches, unlicensed vehicles drivers and even murder that are associated with app based services.

For example, when you download the Uber app, you agree to terms and conditions by default. Because you've agreed to the terms and conditions hidden in the fine print, Uber can absolve itself of anything that happens to you–be it an accident, theft, assault, or death.

Lives would be saved and security risks significantly reduced if safety and legislature issues are changed to create a level playing field. In fact, 83% of Americans believe ride-hailing app drivers should be drug-tested, 91% believe ride-hailing app drivers must have appropriate commercial and liability insurance, and 83% believe drivers should undergo criminal background checks.

Lyft is trying to shield its services from a new California law that makes it harder to treat workers as contractors rather than employees.
