Since the car service Uber launched, they’ve made some big waves, not just with their rapidly growing customer base and network of drivers, but also in terms of headlines in the news. They’ve run into a number of legal clashes in different cities, and not just over their definite threat to city cab companies, like in New York. Some cities have seen sexual assault cases, and even murder charges brought against Uber drivers.

Of course, this calls into question how Uber vets its potential drivers to ensure safe rides for passengers. While pressure is being put on the company to perform background checks on their drivers, one listener, who is an Uber driver himself, calls in and explains why these background checks may not make any difference.
