My first thought was, Safety?! Bull- whoever dreamed that up owns stock in a company that fingerprints folks ( or their brother in law owns it). This a bit facetious and might be unlikely but my second thought was, Promote safety!? How many people will die because they can't get a ride so they drive a car when they shouldn't or they get run over while walking or riding a bike when otherwise they would have Ubered a ride?
This is a good example of how the world doesn't work the way you think it does and just because something makes you feel better doesn't mean it is actually making a difference.
