Food delivery riders are trapped in a cycle in which speeding up your delivery can endanger your personal safety and slowing down your income.Meituan, Ele. me and Dada committed 5,026 traffic violations from November 16 to 30, 2021, and 8,311 violations from December 1 to 15, according to a list of traffic violations by food delivery companies released by Guangzhou Traffic police, Guangzhou Daily reported.What is the cause of the riders’ speed or slow down?In response, one rider calculated that his modified car could run at a speed of 50-60km /h and earn 300 yuan by running 60 rounds in 12 hours a day.However, if the speed is lowered to the required 25km/h, he can expect to lose 20% to 30% of his running time and income for the same working hours, and sometimes he may get bad comments from users for overtime.”If the rules of the platform remain the same, it is unlikely that the speed of takeaway riders will slow down,” said a traffic policeman who often deals with riders.”When we talk to this group, it’s not that they don’t care about their safety at all, but that they can’t take their safety into consideration when the delivery time is short, and some of them are just taking chances,” he said.So again, the root of the problem lies in platform rules.In this regard, some experts stressed that the main responsibility of employment of platform enterprises should be clarified, and the employment risk should not be transferred to riders.
