TIPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE, SOUND, AND SNUG
How to make sure every ride goes smoothly
We compiled a brief list of the top safety tips from our experts for your reference. We want you to stay safe and following these basic guidelines is the easiest way to do so.
Focus on the road, we’ll focus on everything else…
Try not to worry about anything other than paying attention to the road in front of you. We’ll make sure everything else functions accordingly. Never drive when you’re feeling distracted or overly tired. And please try to make use of a phone mount so you can easily view your directions and keep both hands on the wheel at all times.
Keep an eye out for everyone else out there…
It’s easy to forget about pedestrians and bikers when you’re focused on providing great service for your riders. Please be careful during pick-ups and drop-offs, while driving at night, and whenever you find yourself in unfamiliar territory.
Drop your passengers off correctly…
Let your riders out in zones that are safe, legal, and out of the way of moving traffic. Make sure to understand the restrictions and regulations that correspond to your local drop-off areas.
Recommend your passengers sit in the back…
Whenever possible, recommend that your riders sit in the backseat(s). This will create a more professional environment and also enable your passengers to choose either side of the car to exit from during a drop-off.
Seat belts are necessary. Let your riders know…
Make it a habit to ask your riders to buckle up before a trip. This ensures that they are safe and you are following the law.
Keep calm and contact Tryp
If you ever experience any situation in which you or the rider are uncomfortable for any reason, please don’t hesitate to contact Tryp immediately. Keep calm, focus on the road, and don’t be afraid to pull over and end the ride if you feel that the safety or comfort of anyone has been compromised. If there is an emergency, please contact 911.
