I got curious about this, so I did a google search. There are a ton of web sites that do licence plate searches. Turns out it only costs 14.95 for a one time search. The get out full name, registration details, and other police records. Sounds like enough to track us down if they want to.

I'm wondering if it's happened yet.

Why would anyone want to look you up? Besides two really nasty woman, I have never had an issue of that magnitude.

Anyone can do this. Why just PAX? What about the road rage king you cut off? $14.95 and he's casing your house, pouring water into you gas tank.

This is a good point. It goes along with lots of other scenarios as well though, such as the road rage situation already mentioned. If you give someone a reason to want to track you down, they'll be able to as long as they are willing to invest the time and money to do so. In this information age, it's easy to get someone's personal info as long as you are willing to pay for it.

I think the key is simply not giving anyone the reason to want to. With a PAX, just take them from A to B in the most un-eventful way possible. The chance that they're going to somehow want to track you down is going to be extremely small of you don't give them a reason to want to.

I still don't understand why it is necessary for a passenger to have our license plate number months after the ride has completed.

I'm sure many of these companies are shady as hell. The Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) protects us somewhat, but there will always be loopholes, unfortunately. I don't agree with Uber giving out our full license plate numbers. What might work better to protect passengers and riders is a QR code that can be scanned by the rider and verified by the driver when the person approaches the vehicle. If it doesn't match, then the person doesn't get in. I personally don't unlock my doors unless they are verified they are the correct passengers and I'm their driver. End of story.

It kind of doesn’t matter if Uber is giving it out. They can see it when they walk up to the car. Take a quick picture of it. It’s no secret. Everybody is vulnerable at the time of the ride. After the ride passenger can track us down, even call us through the app. If the driver is smart, He’ll have Dashcam video.

Yeah. Well anyone can take pictures of any car and any license plate. But we shouldn't make it easy for them by GIVING them our license so they can screen shot it and use it as a tool to harass us.

Just Murk them if they come to your house, and you will hit the news "Uber driver killed customer in self defense when customer searched online for the uber drivers license plate number and came to his house" haha
