Paris Premium Limo supports the National Limousine Association’s partnership with "Ride Responsibly®”, a campaign encouraging the public to Think Before You App®.
What Does That Mean Exactly?
To "Think Before You App®” is to consider the risks involved when using popular ride-hailing apps and services. Often times, these ride-sharing apps will treat their drivers as 3rd party provides, taking the responsibility and accountability off of them for all of their driver’s actions. Furthermore, there are no universal regulatory safety and employment standards for hiring these drivers. With no regular standard in place, these apps only perform varying, if any, levels of criminal background checks, and drug testing for these drivers we are so willingly getting into a car with. While not all drivers or ride-hailing apps are dangerous, the reality is that many of them are and incidents occur startlingly often.
The "Ride Responsibly®” campaign, empowered by the National Limousine Association, aims to bring awareness to acts of violence, sexual assault, operation of vehicles by unsafe or unlicensed drivers, as well as the many other crimes that occur everyday due to the negligence of ride-hailing apps and the complacency of passengers alike. Getting in the car with a stranger has become so commonplace that no one thinks twice about the risks involved. While you personally cannot vet your drivers, ride-hailing services can. "Ride Responsibly®” aims to hold all private ground transportation services to the same standards regarding safety and employment. This ensures that these drivers are subject to drug screenings, criminal background checks, and have proper license and insurance for your safety.
