While many Lyft drivers are safe and efficient in the way they take their passengers from place to place, many of them are not. Even though there is no hard data yet to say that bad Lyft drivers are becoming an increasing larger percentage of the total accidents that happen on the roads, many people who utilize Lyft and many people who do not, have observed Lyft drivers making illegal and dangerous maneuvers. If you have seen cars on the street with the Lyft symbol emblazoned on the windshield, there is a good chance that you have witnessed them making unsafe moves including, making short and sudden stops rather than safely pulling over to a place where it is legal to stop, making illegal u-turns and other illegal maneuvers such as running red lights and failing to yield to the right of way, tailgating other drivers, and many other small to major traffic and safety violations. This is not to say that you, your friends, and all drivers except those who drive Lyft are great driver’s but most of us expect a certain level of skill and sensibilities when we hire someone to get us safely from point A to point B. Unfortunately, many people have been in accidents involving a Lyft driver that have left them and others involved anywhere from mildly to severely injured. In the worst case scenarios, people have died while in an accident involving a Lyft driver.
