Dangerous ride share drivers

In Australia there will always be a high percentage of ride share drivers who will pass a police RBT when pulled over. Many of these same drivers will, however, fail a basic drug test. This is because drugs remains in your system for a much longer time. Unlike alcohol.

How any govt thinks that this isn't a problem or that cost is just too prohibitive to conduct more drug testing along side RBT is very disturbing and concerning.

A ride share driver is no different to an airline pilot. Innocent lives depends on their "fitness" to do their job. Working whilst impaired simply endangers others. These types of drivers should be caught and taken off the roads before they kill someone. The problem with the WA labor state govt is that they are simply not interested. You will only hear excuses from them

In WA, Uber and Ola are looking at some very hefty fines for endangering passengers lives if they know the drivers are driving under the influence of drugs

I don't see the police conducting regular RBTs on WA roads. Surely you can't expect them to be conducting drug testing. Too much work. Weather also not conducive.

Besides they have already gone on holidays.
