Hesitating to hail that ride?

Have you had second thoughts about using a ride-hailing service, like UBER or LYFT, due to allegations of sexual harassment and more by their independent-contract drivers? Both companies have been making big changes in their policies and rider agreements. A big change is that both now will allow riders and drivers to file allegations of rape, sexual assault and harassment in courts and mediation, rather than being locked into an arbitration hearing.  Uber also announced recently it will do criminal background checks on its U.S. drivers annually and add a 911 button for summoning help in emergencies.

Regardless of the means for registering a complaint, the smart rider will get competent legal help.
