    Wall Street Journal Reporter looking for DC drivers who have taken pax to ER

    Hi all, I'm a WSJ journalist doing an in-depth look at why people are using rideshare like Uber and Lyft to get to the Emergency Room. I'm focusing on the DC-metro area and looking for driver experiences. I was curious if any of you had driven distressed or injured pax and would be interested...

    Washington Post Does Fake News Hit Job On Lyft

    It was painful to read this hit job on Lyft. They pull 12 examples of unwanted advances (3 of which came from this beauty shown below) to characterize Lyft Drivers as predators basically all while the mother-ship sheds a blind eye. To further illustrate the bimbos point, it is said that with...

    Any need for a *smart* panic button for drivers?

    We've seen a lot of threads on here about panic buttons and are curious to hear what you all think of our approach. The problem here is that Uber/Lyft (mainly Uber) have made some improvements for driver safety, but not enough. Last week's Uber release allows you to call 911 from the app with a...

    If PAX gets sick- wait for ambulance or drive to hospital?

    If a PAX falls ill or passes out during the ride, should you pull over, call 911 and wait for the ambulance...or google the nearest emergency room and head on over? What does Uber policy state regarding that? What about insurance and legal liability? What would you do/ should you do?

    People are hailing an Uber instead of calling 911 for emergencies and it could cost you your life

    Experts warn the public; the ambulance knows which hospital can treat your ailment. Some will not be able to handle your situation and you'll be rejected and they will call 911 and take you to one that can.

    Baby Cakes

    I ventured into another forum. One that caught my attention under tag "complaints" from Baby Cakes had me rolling on the floor. The responses left about pistachios had me crying.

    Emergency phone

    Has anyone hidden a phone in the vehicle in case your primary phone is stolen? All phones must dial 911 even without a service contract by FCC law. https://www.fcc.gov/general/9-1-1-and-e9-1-1-services So I'm considering mounting one in the trunk. I've got older phones without plans but the...

    Uber can find you faster than 911

    According to an FCC report in 2014 that Oliver cites, location accuracy improvements could save over 10,000 lives yearly. But since 70 to 80 percent of 911 calls come from cell phones, the location information dispatchers get varies widely according to wireless service provider. Shockingly...

He knew something wasn't right almost immediately, and called 911 but pretended to be talking to a friend. Eventually they sent the cops to...
