Cheap ride shares via Facebook a risky business - NZTA

From Checkpoint, 6:25 pm on 22 June 2021

Unlicenced cheap ride shares operating via social media are a risky business, Waka Kotahi is warning.

It says most drivers have not passed the police vetting process for a fit and proper operator and do not have a licence to operate.

And that means there no guarantee the vehicle is safe.

Waka Kotahi's Kelvin Lloyd says groups like the Dunedin Sober Drivers Facebook Page are pretty popular and cheap - but there's a potential danger.
