Ridesharing services Uber and Lyft have become a popular and effective transportation option in major metro areas and cities across the country over the past few years. Their popularity among users, however, has been tempered by scrutiny and criticism from lawmakers, safety advocates, and drivers. Two rulings from earlier this month help illustrate a few of the controversial issues affecting these companies.
