Rideshare apps have truly revolutionized the way people get around. It allows individuals to get a private ride from many airports worldwide, avoid expensive parking in downtown areas, and have a safe option for travelling home from a bar late at night. However, no matter how many good reviews a driver has, you are still putting your life in the hands of a fallible human being.
