SAN DIEGO, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --As state lawmakers struggle to outline regulatory jurisdictions, insurance requirements, prevent redlining, and improve worker and rider protections within the ever-expanding rideshare industry, it's easy to lose sight of ridesharing benefits for all California motorists. A new Monder Law article examines arrest data from the Department of Motor Vehicles and presents an unbiased analysis of DUI arrest numbers from 2008 - 2013. The data shows that DUI arrest rates decreased for six consecutive years in a row, and the article explores the relationship between the rideshare industry and reducing the number of impaired drivers. Uber has released several studies claiming that it reduces DUI rates, but there are few non-branded studies available.
California is home to Uber, Lyft, and Google headquarters. While San Francisco was the first battleground for ridesharing regulations early on, ultimately the State of California was friendly to the rideshare industry. That progress did not put an end to the State's involvement, as class-action lawsuits and appeals continue to complicate matters. Monder Law Group hopes to serve as a voice to encourage lawmakers to continue to be an ally and leader to the rideshare industry as it grows.
"Now that Google is set to launch Waze Carpool in San Francisco, lawmakers and businesses must not stand in the way of ridesharing companies who can help keep impaired drivers off of the roadways," said Attorney Vik Monder. He added, "As the technology develops and grows, the ridesharing industry is set to reach the largest segment of the population who are most likely to be arrested."
