Uber, Lyft reportedly skimp on background checks
CNET --------- Uber and Lyft use a background screening service that's less expensive than one used by parts of the taxicab industry, and the two ride-hailing companies failed to identify some drivers with criminal backgrounds, according to Download.com. Lyft and Uber use Checkr, which reportedly failed to catch 25 drivers in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas with criminal records in its screening process in 2015, according to Download. Uber confirmed to Download, a sister site to CNET, that it used Checkr, while Lyft didn't respond to an inquiry from the site. To learn more click on the picture below to read the article.
