PICTURED: Convicted armed robber who was behind the wheel of self-driving Uber when it killed pedestrian as she wheeled her bike across a road

Felon who was at wheel of killer self-driving Uber car

Rafaela Vasquez, 44, (bottom right) was the 'safety driver' of the automated Volvo when it hit Elaine Herzberg, 49, (top right) on Sunday night in Tempe, Arizona. She had two felony convictions - for attempted armed robbery and making a false statement - when she was hired by Uber for its self-driving car trials in the Phoenix, Arizona, area. She told police that Herzberg, who had herself spent time in prison for drug offenses, stepped out in front of her with a bicycle (seen inset) carrying multiple shopping bags and that she had no time to brake before it hit her. Vasquez was traveling at 40 mph at the time, well within the 45 mph speed limit and insisted that she was alert but that nothing could have been done to stop the crash. Her story was supported by footage from cameras fitted at the front and back of the Volvo SUV that Vasquez was in control of. Police have not yet revealed that footage. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators examine the vehicle, left.

REPORTED LIST OF INCIDENTS  INVOLVING UBER AND LYFT

Uber’s process for onboarding drivers is dangerously negligent. Neither Uber nor Lyft uses fingerprints or law enforcement to background-check their drivers. And Uber doesn’t even bother to meet with drivers in person before allowing them to ferry passengers.

 

The result is a series of incidents involving “ridesharing” passengers being harmed and criminal offenders behind the wheel:

Conservative firebrand who was called a 'moron' by Gigi Hadid gets barred from Uber and Lyft for saying it's 'extremely unfortunate' every driver in NYC is a Muslim

Conservative firebrand barred from Uber and Lyft

A conservative blogger and Internet personality has been banned by the ride-sharing applications Lyft and Uber after making anti-Muslim comments on Twitter following Tuesday's terrorist attack in New York City. Laura Loomer, known for her right-wing political activism, had her accounts 'deactivated' following multiple incendiary messages aimed at New York's Muslim community. 'Someone needs to create a non Islamic form of Uber or Lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver,' Loomer wrote in one post on Wednesday.

Drivers in the same area coordinate to log out of the taxi-hailing app so their cars drop off the list of available rides causing prices to rise, say researchersALAMY

Uber drivers are secretly colluding to cause price surges that allow them to charge customers more, according to research seen by The Times.

Academics interviewed Uber drivers in London and New York and analysed 1,012 posts on the independent Uberpeople.net site, finding that drivers were playing the company’s algorithms.

According to the researchers, drivers in the same area co-ordinate to log out of the taxi-hailing app so that their cars drop off the list of available rides.

This causes prices to increase in line with the economics of supply and demand, with fares potentially rising to several times the normal rate.
