The city has cited the ride-hailing company Lyft for failing to use a warning system meant to weed out violent drivers — specifically one who punched a customer last year and then, while at the wheel for Uber weeks later, fatally karate kicked a taxi driver in broad daylight.

‘If Lyft had cooperated with the city, authorities could have taken steps to prevent this violent driver with a hair-trigger temper from driving on another platform,” the victim’s son says.
