People use ride-sharing services such as Lyft and Uber daily. Ride-sharing safety is something everyone should be aware of.

After the tragic event in Columbia, South Carolina, in which a college student was found murdered after entering what she believed was her Uber, there are ways to help avoid those dangerous situations:

  • Wait indoors when possible
  • Check the app to identify the car’s make, model and color as well as license plate
  • Check the app for the photo and name of the driver
  • Know the route the driver should take
  • Make sure someone knows where you’re going and when
  • If something doesn’t feel right, you can always cancel the ride
