Ride Sharing Services May Be Driving Up Traffic Deaths
- Mar 5 2021
Rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft are putting more cars on the road and contributing to more traffic problems as a result.
Not only do rideshare services increase traffic congestion and pollution, but recent studies have shown that ride sharing services may be driving up traffic deaths.
While Uber and Lyft have been credited with keeping impaired drivers off the road, the increased presence of ride-hailing drivers means more cars are on the road and the risks of traffic-related deaths have increased as a result.
