During an investigation into the incidents, China's Ministry of Transport found Didi violated multiple safety rules, including failing to flag "high risk drivers and improperly handling deposits." The Ministry of Transport concluded that Didi's "management of people and vehicles is out of control."
Authorities will be fining Didi's executives and legal teams an undisclosed sum. Additionally, Didi's carpooling service Hitch will continue to be suspended indefinitely.
The ministry is also initiating a broad crackdown on ride-hailing firms that hire illegal drivers.
