With the emerging popularity of ride sharing services, there is also an increasing number of Uber and Lyft accident injuries and assaults. As a passenger, we are trusting our safety to the driver and hoping that they are making good driving decisions, as well as conducting themselves professionally and appropriately.
The more fares an Uber driver can pick up in the shortest amount of time, the more money they can make. This pattern can make the drivers more susceptible to an Uber Accident, or a ride sharing accident.
It is not unusual to see Uber and Lyft cars driving fast, making unsafe turns, and weaving in and out of traffic and tailing other vehicles. Also, many ride share drivers are distracted by their GPS devices, mobile devices, mobile phone apps, computers, and passengers. This distracted driving makes the ride sharing vehicles prone to an Uber accident, or a Lyft accident.
