Following the death of a 21-year-old University of South Carolina student last month, lawmakers in the state are considering legislation that would require ride-hailing drivers to have the name of the company they work for illuminated on their window, the Post and Courier reports.
The woman, Samantha Josephson, was allegedly murdered by a man who posed as her Uber driver. While the current law requires a company's logo to be easily visible, it does not require it to be reflective or to illuminate.
Rep. Seth Rose (D-Columbia) introduced his mandatory illumination bill as the "Samantha L. Josephson Ridesharing Safety Act."
