Across the country every day UBER/LYFT are complicit in crimes being committed by the hundreds of thousands. How long before we see regulation of the Industry? Ping! 1) Attention has been diverted from the road to the device with all analytical resources channeled to making decisions about acceptance/canceling after acceptance/navigation Ping! 2) Illegal U-Turns, lane changes without signaling, sudden stops, ignoring traffic control devices and signs occurs as drivers rush(?) to the pick-up spot. Ping! 3) vehicles are driven in need of maintenance. A random inspection of any area where vehicles queue up will find cars driven by illegals using someone else's documents, vehicles in need of tires, lights, brakes or chocks...... Ping! 4) Drivers are under insured or not insured at all as they drop off a passenger until they pick up the next one because their insurance company will refuse any claim related to an accident occurring with the vehicle used for ride share activities. Drivers lie or ignore the questions designed to identify the activity to save money. UBER/LYFT knows all of this and more and actually have real time data showing vehicles with passengers in them exceeding legal speed limits, not stopping at stop signs etc..... Each and every Ping! generated launches a tremendous number of people across the country on a task where laws are regularly ignored. Sooner or later it will come to an end and the government will step in and regulate the industry. It is the lack of government oversight of the industry that has allowed it to reach the depths it has. When it occurs... Embrace it instead of resisting it. Regulatory agencies make sure the people we drive get in an elevator that is inspected with some regularity. They insure the safe operation of traffic control devices as well as placement of directional and safety/warning signs. Regulatory agencies insure the gas that is in the tanks is transported there in a safe manner as well as stored and dispensed in a regulated fashion. Think about it. How many other professional drivers involved in transporting anything on the roads of the country do so without government oversight, special training, safety inspections etc..... UBER/LYFT like to say they are "technology companies".... They have the technology to make it all a lot safer. Over the road truck drivers are not going to show up at the wrong address to pick up or drop off without it being noticed and dealt with. They drive vehicles monitored with speed, braking, acceleration and braking evaluated regularly. Insurance companies have begun the transition to live monitoring of their insured's driving habits not just while being insured but as part of their acceptance process. No system is as broke as ride share is for as long as it has been broken and not seen it come to pass that the Govt steps in to force controls. It won't be a bad thing. It will be easy for rates to be raised and begrudgingly accepted by the consumers when it happens. What do you think? Do you think regulation of the ride share industry is needed? Due? Do you agree or disagree that it could/would lead to stabilization of the industry and reasonable compensation being in place that would compensate drivers for maintaining their vehicles to acceptable standards and performing the service in an safe and acceptable manner? Of course the regulatory agency will need to be funded which would come in the form of regulatory fees on every trip, revenue from inspections and enforcement as well. How is it that the Trillions of dollars in rideshare revenue has flown under the radar for so long across the country? Why is there not a politician out there with a plan to fund some need not pushing for an UBER/LYFT tax?
