Illinois Transportation Providers Act
Did you know that Section 25(e) of the Illinois Transportation Network Providers Act actually sides with the rideshare companies if one of their drivers commits sexual assault? Currently, a lawsuit has been raised to challenge this law in the Appellate Court of Illinois.
If someone is assaulted in a traditional taxi cab in Illinois, the cab company is held liable. However, up until now, rideshare companies like Lyft and Uber have been treated differently, the argument being that if rideshare customers do not have the same protection of the law in an Uber and Lyft, as they do in a normal taxicab, it would be safer for people to take a cab instead. The court challenge seeks to amend this law so that rideshare companies are responsible for assault their drivers may commit.
