Uber and Lyft are very good vehicle ride sharing application. They make a difference in people’s life and make it better. There is no doubt about that. But, we also need to think about safety in an event of what could go wrong with it. The vehicles that are in operation with these ride-sharing applications needs to be regulated with safety being the number one priority in anyone’s mind. There are too many recalls on vehicles in general and the vehicles that are approved for these ride-sharing application needs to be free of these potentially dangerous recalls such as Takata airbag recalls. What happens if the vehicle got in a wreck and the safety system in the vehicle didn’t protect the drivers and the occupants of the vehicle because there was an active recall on the safety systems such as Airbag, Seat-belts, Seat, Tyres, Fuel Systems, Windshields etc.
Self-driving cars could save many lives. More and more people are dying in vehicle accidents every passing year. The autonomous vehicle could play a significant role in drastically reducing the fatalities in vehicle accidents. Until these vehicles could make a difference in people’s life, ride-sharing applications like Uber and Lyft with manual drivers are going to very important part in keeping the safety intact with proper regulation in place.
