San Diego Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez is pushing for the California Public Utilities Commission to make all crash reports sent in by Uber and Lyft public record. While the ride sharing companies are required to send in detailed reports of crashes, after intense lobbying, the reports are currently private.

Gonzalez has stated if the CPUC doesn’t make the reports public, she will “utilize every tool to force them to do so.” More than 150 lawsuits have been filed against Uber and Lyft in San Francisco Superior Court since 2013 claiming the ride-sharing drivers were in the wrong. Of the 47 traffic fatalities in San Francisco since 2018, 7 have involved rideshares.
