Put signage on rideshare vehicles

Feb 19, 2020 | News

Rod spoke with 3AW’s Neil Mitchell this morning about having proper signage on rideshare vehicles, following a disturbing increase in drivers posing as ride share.

Last year Rod raised the issue in Parliament after a young women was assaulted when she was lured into a vehicle by a man claiming to be the “Uber” she had ordered – asking the Minister for Transport to apply the same safety measures to rideshare drivers as apply to taxi drivers – proper signage, tamper proof cameras and GPS on the vehicle.

The EIC Inquiry into the CPV Reforms has also recommended tightening safety regulations around rideshare, including installing cameras.
