Boone PD Urging Public to Use Caution With Ride Sharing and Taxi Services
Boone Police encourage the public to use caution when using ride sharing or taxi services. There have been reports, locally and nationally, of citizens being hailed by drivers or getting into vehicles purported to be legitimate passenger services, when in fact they were not. Legitimate regulated ride sharing and taxi services will have some combination of signage, driver’s licensure, and verification via an app or other means.
Passengers should always practice good personal safety by traveling with a friend, using verified services, not displaying cash, and other strategies. Tips can be found at the Boone Police Department’s website: http://www.townofboone.net/departments/police-department/crime-prevention-tips/
