anonymous accounts allow for this type of BS. Passengers should have their accounts tied to the dl# and or ssn.
I do not disagree... but, I have to ask:
How do you feel about government being able to track everything you do and everywhere you are or have been?

nobody is trafficking in a rideshare car
get tf real if you believe that
I don't know about 'trafficked' people, but drivers here transport hookers to/from gigs all the time.

if someone is simply willingly getting in an uber and going somewhere they are obviously not being trafficked

The only way we could have an impact is to crash. In which case, deactivation, the end of human trafficing.

and what do those have to do with Uber and Lyft ?
You brought up Uber: "if someone is simply willingly getting in an uber and going somewhere they are obviously not being trafficked "
you act like I said there isn't any trafficking or pimping going on whatsoever anywhere in the world
Not what I implied at all... but I know for a fact that rideshare drivers transport women that are being rented, bought and sold. I'm NOT saying it's the drivers 'fault' or Uber or Lyft's fault. As what I think you meant to say, how in the world would we as drivers (or Uber/Lyft) have any idea who is getting in our car for what purpose?!

I agree with you. If we can do something, we should. Not as uber drivers, but as human beings.

BUT, Uber destroys the possibility of help when they enforce ratings on passengers.
What if I think my passenger is a victim of human trafficking? I go to the police or something... and I was wrong. She wasn’t being trafficked. For all that mess I get a 1*. My rating goes down. If that happens twice, my rating will be on the floor. In risk of getting deactivated.

I have a kid coming in a couple months, I can’t risk this job.
One or 2 one star ratings won't put you anywhere near de-activation. You gotta be really really bad at this job, pretty much don't give a @@@@ and go out with a filthy car and a nasty attitude, to get enough low ratings to be fired.
