Lyft finally catches up with Uber's continuous driver background checks

Lyft, the newly public ride-hailing app, came under fire last week when a passenger brought attention to a harassment situation that stemmed from her driver's crude behavior — and highlighted the company's weak response to her claims.
Lyft eventually put out a statement about the harassment allegations and then a full week later, Lyft launched new features as part of its " commitment to safety ." Two new safety features revolve around drivers and are very similar to systems competitor Uber has offered for years to monitor drivers.
