Killed by uber - GET RID OF DANGEROUS UBER DRIVERS IN LONDON

This petition had 8,060 supporters


Uber drivers are time and time again proving to be a problem. They are not only unchecked but have proved to be unbelivably dangerous. In the last 2 months of 2016 my little brother jim (21 years old) was his by TWO uber driver while driving through London to work on his motor bike. He wasn't at fault for either of his accidents. The first time he was hit he was lucky and got away with light damage to his bike. The second time he wasn't so lucky. He was traveling in his own clear lane and was pulled out on by an uber who was on the phone and didn't check before he pulled into the lane jim was in. Jim was taken to hospital where he had to have 9 life saving operations in 10 nights - organs were cut away as some had died due to impact, stents fitting in his heart,  fingers died and he had to have a double leg amputation. After two and a half weeks of fighting he couldn't give anymore and died with 20+ family members kissing hugging and standing with him around his bed. Almost exactly one month after getting engaged. He had a whole happy life ahead of him. What my brother went through in those 3 weeks he spent in hospital was hell on earth. Not just for him but for our whole family. If this had been a one off we wouldn't be making this petition. But since this has happened we are being shared more and more horrifying stories that relate to dangerous and careless uber drivers. It's even more worrying now than ever as parliament have passed that uber will be ferrying non - Emergancy patients to and from hospital in a fight to help "save the NHS". More people's lives can't be put at risk. We need to help save the black taxis and get these people off our roads. Keep our trusted licenced cabs going get rid of the cowboys.
