5 Tips to Help You Stay Safe While Using Uber or Lyft

North Charleston SC Car Wreck Injury Attorneys

Thousands of people in the North Charleston area count on rideshare apps like Lyft or Uber to help them get around. Recent tragic events, however, highlight the fact that you can never be too careful when getting into a stranger’s car.

These tips will help you make your travels with Uber and Lyft as safe as possible.

1. Make Sure the Vehicle Details Match

Confirm the vehicle make, model, and license plate number before getting in the car. Only order rideshare through approved apps. Never get into a car with someone who simply tells you they are an Uber or Lyft driver.

2. Stay Inside While You Wait for Your Ride

Waiting around outside with your phone in your hand tells potential kidnappers that you’re ready to hop into a strange car.

4. Let Someone Know Where You’re Going

Some apps like Uber let you instantly share your driver and vehicle details with anyone, even if they don’t have the app. Letting someone know you’re in an Uber means they’ll be waiting for you to arrive safely at the expected time.

Larry Conner

I met Richard through my daughter. I fell 8 feet in February 2011 and broke the L2 vertebra in my back!! Over a period of two years, I realized I was going to need help. I came to meet with Richard to talk about my accident. It was the best thing I ever did! My case went on for a little over 3 years and I am very pleased with the outcome Richard helped me obtain. He is an excellent attorney!
