Service-sharing” services like Uber, Lyft and Airbnb have been in the news quite a bit lately. There was
the horrific story about the Uber driver
in Kalamazoo who allegedly killed six
people and injured two others between
picking up and dropping off some of
his passengers. And then there was the
recent article about some Airbnb patrons
who found a decomposing woman’s
body in the garden of the Palaiseau,
France, home in which they were staying.
These are terrible stories but are incidents
that could also happen while using other
forms of transportation, staying in hotels,
or going about everyday life.
