After spending years working with the courts and recent conversation with a San Francisco taxi cab enforcement police officer as well as citizens to use cabs in the city I have heard several more stories about rapes, robberies and abuse done by taxi cab drivers that cannot be identified afterwards and whose companies back the drivers up instead of listening to the passengers who pay their bills. I have never heard any stories like this about the ride shares. when you use a ride your company there is a record of who you were with where you're going when you got there and so forth. There's an identity attached to both people that makes the situation feel less dangerous, I'm like a cab for you were mistreated the whole time they drive very dangerously and if anything ever happens they can just drive away. I don't often memorize my cab drivers name while I'm in the car. It's about time the cab companies have some sort of competition that made them have a little bit higher standard than maybe respect to people that are sitting in their cars, because as far as I'm concerned sitting there listening to somebody else talking someone on their Bluetooth and drive through red lights is not the safety policy that all you taxi driver seem to be pretending exists. then the same driver take the long way home that you told them not to take, and gets mad when you dock it from their tip. Tips are based on service and if you guys had any service standards then maybe this situation would have never happened.
