UPHD and many other driver organisations together with individual drivers told TfL during a recent consultation process that UberPOOL and other similar ride sharing services posed an unacceptable risk to passengers and drivers. Our concerns, based on collective experience was ignored by TfL.
The service poses a serious threat to vulnerable passengers especially so late at night.
The reports of serious issues with this service are mounting up. Drivers and passengers have been attacked. The police have been called out so frequently that their crime report templates have been changed to include an UberPOOL category.
Professional drivers take pride in their duty of care to the public. We say the service is dangerous and must end. Please support us by signing our petition addressed to the Mayor of London and the Secretary of State for Transport at Change.org.
