To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (California Government Code §§ 6250), I hereby request the following records:

I'd like to request all police reports/records of incidents occurring in Uber, Lyft, or other ride-share systems.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Virginia Fay

Hello Shirley,

Thank you so much for your reply. I appreciate the time spent searching for these records. Would you be able to provide them electronically — for instance as a link, CSV, TSV, fixed format, email, FTP, cloud, or other electronic transfer service most convenient for you?

Thank you again!

Best,
Virginia Fay

Ms. Fay

I am confused by your email. In our response to you, we wrote that you need to do two things in order to obtain information from us:

1. Identify the information required by Government Code 6254(f) you want to receive; and

2. Send payment of $6.50

As far as I know, you have done neither. There are no responsive documents. We will be creating summaries by hand. If you are asking me whether I can scan the summaries after we create them and email them to you. The answer is “yes”. But at this point the ball is in your court.
Best,

D
