Hasn't this been a goal of Uber and Lyft for quite awhile now?
How does this protect the rider? A drunk person could still get in the wrong car! Simply a predator just has to park outside a bar at closing and tell a drunk girl that he is their Uber. No pin is going to solve this.
Eh, mixed feelings on this. I mean I guess it is good but seems a bit superfluous really. There are plenty of ways to verify your driver, license plate, name, car make/model, etc. I feel the incidents of drunk girls getting in the wrong car are really just the fault of too much alcohol and not thinking. Will a pin stop drunk girls from getting in the wrong cars? No way, if they can't remember to check the license plate their is no way they are going to remember to activate some sort of pin.
The passenger count is simply the max occupancy of passengers that the car can hold. You do not have to find the extra people, you can simply ride by yourself :)
also keep in mind that the cost is per ride not per person!
Of course they don't becuase Uber and Lyft think they are above the law. UGH PLEASE!
Here id my question to you, if someone looks young do you ask to see ID before they get in your car?
Oh gosh, this is just devastating. Poor little girl. I find it strange that if this women and man where is cahoots that they would use her Uber account - so dumb!!
Oh wow, this is terrible. So this was riders doing this that were all a part of a scheme? How terrifying
Uber is losing their marbles...
Oh ok, I thought it was like free rides or something. This makes a lot more sense but not worth it IMO.
I don't understand what the $24.99 gets you? Is it like a day, week, monthly payment?
Whenever I think of funny remedies I think of Windex from "My big fat greek wedding". That was possibly the best product placement in history.
I hate stories like this, so incredibly sad. That Taxi driver was just trying to protect his vehicle and do what was right, I am sure he never thought it would result in his death. I hope his family gets some aid from Uber (though sadly, unlikely).
I have a feeling the parents who NEED to see this are the ones who will completely turn a blind eye to this type of post. I am sure they are think they are good parents and are justified in their reasons for not putting their child in a car seat in that one situation. So infuriating, it only takes one situation for a life to change forever.
I am with you on this one, this irritates me to no end!! Those poor children who are in these situations completely unaware that they are even in danger. We have gone from "do not get in cars with strangers" to "get in cars with strangers and don't wear seatbelts" GRRR
Men who are so invested in womens reproductive issues kind of creep me out...
I dont see what is cute about this at all?
Is Sitbaq still around? Your web URL links are not working.
Do you have any information on how this impacts your electric bill? I would assume charging multiple scooters every night has to add up.
