One in Six Vehicles Operated by Uber, Lyft Drivers Have Unrepaired Defects Covered by Outstanding Safety Recalls

NBC News reports that “more than one in six vehicles operated by Uber and Lyft drivers has unrepaired defects covered by outstanding safety recalls, according to a new study.” Consumer Reports “examined almost 94,000 vehicles in New York City and Seattle, two cities where ride-sharing has become a popular option.” The study “found that one out of six Uber and Lyft drivers were operating cars, trucks or crossovers with outstanding recalls.” The publication “did not provide details on what repairs were needed.” Experts such former NHTSA Administrator Joan Claybrook “warn that even seemingly insignificant recalls can’t be ignored.” Uber “told The Associated Press it does flag any vehicle in its fleet subject to a “do not drive warning” from the NHTSA.” But these are “issued only when a potential problem is so severe as to raise the serious risk of causing a crash.”

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...)
