Recently, about 8,000 Shenzhen-based drivers from the car-hailing service Didi received messages saying that their cooperation with Didi had been terminated due to violations. According to Didi, the company has not previously been exercising strict control over all the registered drivers, and this was just a routine check.

The safety of car-hailing apps has recently become a hot topic. On May 2, a female passenger was robbed and killed by a driver; on May 1, a Didi driver was caught masturbating while driving four female students in Haikou; last month, many passengers reported being harassed and cursed at by drivers after the passengers gave them negative evaluations. With the apps constantly growing in popularity, better regulations are urgently needed.

At the end of March, a Shenzhen city transportation committee released the results of a car-hailing service investigation. They found that 1,425 drivers had records of drug abuse, one driver had a history of mental illness, and 1,661 drivers had criminal records.
