Researchers Link Ride-Share Companies to Rise in Fatal Traffic Accidents

The Hill reports that “the arrival of ride-sharing services has resulted in an increase fatal traffic accidents in U.S. cities,” according to a draft research report, produced by the University of Chicago and Rice University. Ride-share apps are “associated” with a two- to three-percent increase in the number of fatalities for vehicle occupants and pedestrians. Uber said its data science team reviewed the report and “found it to be flawed.” He said, “Uber has contributed to safety in many ways and we take our responsibility to help keep people safe seriously. That’s why we’ve rolled out features to reduce the risk of drowsy driving and notify drivers of their speed on the road and will continue to do more.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
