Mount Olive Uber Accident Attorneys

Mount Olive, a township in Morris County, formed on March 22, 1871, had, as of 2020, a population of 28,886. Located in the Raritan Valley region, it is situated in western Morris County, bordering Warren and Sussex counties on the Mucsonetcong River. The town was named for Benjamin Olive, Lt. Governor of New Jersey, who donated land for the site of churches built in the area.

Today, Mount Olive residents not only see a greatly changed landscape, but enjoy the ability to call for an Uber to get to work, school, a night out, or other destinations. Leaving one’s car at home is becoming more convenient with readily available door-to-door Uber service. The key factors that drive the growth of the ride-share market are Costs, congestion, and comfort.

Uber is referred to as a transportation network company that links Uber drivers with people who need a ride. Nationally, Uber drivers are considered to be independent contractors and not employees of the company. Uber Technologies, Inc., suggests they are a car/people matching service. Uber generated a revenue of $31.88 billion in 2022.

Uber Accident Statistics in the Garden State

Ride-hailing or ride-sharing companies have been operating in New Jersey for years. Uber has stated it signed more than 13,000 drivers since launching in 2013. New Jersey was the 36th state to ultimately enact a statewide ride-sharing law.

Ever since Uber was introduced into the state, its popularity has grown exponentially, with riders using the service for a night out, heading to work, going to school, eating out, or heading to the airport. Uber owns 72 percent of the ride-hailing market share as of 2023. Uber is available in approximately 72 countries and 10,000 cities.

Although using an Uber to get to where you want to go may be convenient, it is not without risks. 

Interestingly, although Uber is a convenient way to get about, studies indicate they result in more traffic on the road, more accidents and congestion, and a significant drop in transit ridership – lost revenue that affects maintaining city services.
