Check the license plate. Make sure the car matches the picture on your app by checking the license plate. Be aware of fake rideshare drivers.
Ask “Who are you waiting for?” Make the driver give you a name.
Check the driver. Make sure they match their photo. When in doubt, do not get in the car.
Share ride details with friends or family. Tap the share status in the app.
Ride in the back seat. It’s easier to escape if necessary.
Don’t share personal details. Don’t give your cell number to the driver. Communicate only through the app, as it keeps your information anonymous.
Take care and stay safe,
