San Francisco attorney Chris Dolan recently spoke at a protest against so-called rideshare companies.
Rideshare companies such as Lyft have turned many car owners into smartphone-enabled cab drivers. Most licensed taxi drivers oppose these companies, calling them illegal and wholly unregulated cab services.
One of the biggest problems with rideshare companies is the lack of financial accountability for the traffic accident injuries that inevitably occur.
Many say that the insurance policies of companies such as Uber and Lyft are inadequate to protect passengers in the event of a crash. Others say that there are poor quality controls in place to ensure that drivers are properly trained.
“This is about the safety of San Franciscans and who is going to pay the bill when someone gets hurt,” attorney Chris Dolan said.
“What happens when a pedestrian gets hit?” Mr. Dolan asked. “Who is going to pay their bills? You, me, and the City and County of San Francisco.”
