Ridehailing blamed for rise in traffic congestion, deaths
from Insurance Journal
While the era of app-based ridehailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, has been credited with everything from keeping impaired drivers off the road to increasing job opportunities to adding new levels of convenience, there is a downside. It is also linked with more congestion and traffic deaths, according to new research. The arrival of ridehailing is associated with an increase of approximately 3% in the number of motor vehicle fatalities and fatal accidents, according to research from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
