Seth Rosenfeld, the reporter who broke the story that ride-hailing safety data has been kept hidden from the public with the help of the industry’s chief regulator, offers an update. Since the story appeared, legislators have been calling for changes that would allow at least some access to the data.

“When I read this, I was just outraged. You know, I think we shouldn’t take Uber at its word on when they’ve released the safety report. I think we we deserve to know the cost to all of us for these companies to operate, and that starts with the public agency that’s hiding the data.” – Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez
