    These programs have buried in their user agreements mandatory arbitration clauses that prohibit the users from bring State law actions against these vendors for defects and dangerous conditions in their devices despite the severity of injury or even death. Unwillingly users are giving up their legal rights with these “click wrap” user agreements without sufficient knowledge that they are giving up their legal rights. Users are suffering serious and significant injuries due to the negligence of these companies and have no redress. No-fault does not exists to cover medical expenses, the companies do not honor these claims and the cost of medical treatment is being shifted back onto the City who has to assume the cost via Medicaid. No other transportation industry in this City, Taxi, bus, access-a-ride, pedicab and Citibike is given this overall protection from their own negligence despite this to be one of the most dangerous methods of transportation in the City.
    By being compelled to arbitrate these claims NY’s are being deprived of their right to access to the Courts and Jury trials and the companies cannot be held fully accountable for their conduct. Mandatory arbitration agreements should be deemed unlawful in the City of New York if these companies are going to be allowed to operate.
