Lili Reinhart shined a light on the dark, creepy side of using ride-sharing apps, and now more women are adding to her message about safety with their own personal stories. Ride-sharing apps like Lyft and Uber have become so ingrained in pop culture that they get name-dropped in songs and included in those funny sketches in which celebrities pose as drivers to freak their fans out in the best way.

Still, no matter how popular catching a ride from a stranger has become, there's a need to watch out for creeps who take advantage of something that's supposed to be harmless and convenient. Reinhart wants the world to know this, and so many other women are sharing their stories as an example. 

In case you missed it, Lili Reinhart scared every ride-sharing app user with her tweet about a fake Uber driver trying to get her in his car.

"PSA: I was just ushered to a car by someone posing to be an airport cab/Uber driver," the Riverdale star wrote on Twitter. "I got to his car and there were absolutely no signs that he was a professional service driver. So I did NOT get into the car. Please pay attention and make smart decisions out there." 

Reinhart wanted to share this with her fans so they remember to put safety first.

"Seriously... please be careful out there," she wrote. "You don’t have to be nice or worry about being rude. Trust your gut. It could save you."

Amen to that!

Reinhart's story gave her followers the creeps but also inspired many of them to share their own stories about unsafe Lyft and Uber experiences. 

"It happened the same to my friend. She got into the car though and was almost raped, thankfully she knows how to fight and kicked his a** and called the police," one of Reinhart's followers wrote back. "He had historic [sic] of rape, sexually [sic] assault and even murder. He’s in jail now and he’ll be there for a long time."

Another fan revealed how the airport had to intervene before she got into the car with a fake taxi driver.

"This has happened to me. It’s scary," the fan shared. "When my sister, cousin & I were walking towards his car, I had this gut feeling of not getting into the car & when he was putting our suitcases away, the airport security came & told us he wasn’t a real taxi driver. Glad that you’re okay."

One person revealed they did get into a fake taxi driver's car, but were fortunately unharmed. 

"This happened me and [two] friends [at] Budapest airport," the person wrote. "He drove like a lunatic at high speed, locked the doors and demanded 3 times the normal price of a taxi there. @_Smalla_ we lived to tell the tale."

It's great that she made it out of the car and that she actually wasn't alone. 

The most horrifying story of all involves a woman who had to hop out of a moving Lyft driver's car to avoid being kidnapped.

“Last night at 2:08 a.m., I had to throw myself out of a moving Lyft vehicle," the woman wrote on Instagram. "My Lyft driver attempted to take me to an isolated location FAR from my destination in order to attack/assault me (or worse). Please read the precautions I took [and] red flags I noticed. I was able to save myself and I want you to be able to do the same.”

Another person revealed that her Lyft driver tried to kidnap her, and police weren't helpful. 

"Hey guys so earlier my Lyft driver dead a** tried to kidnap me," she wrote. "He asked me to [make] 'one last stop' and told me 'we are going to Santa Barbara whether you like it or not.' This is all I have on him. Oxnard Police didn't do sh**." 

All of this scary business can definitely make you want to swear off ride-sharing apps forever, but just relax.

You don't have to stop using Lyft, Uber, or taxis unless you really want to. These stories are just reminders to be careful and aware while you use them. As one of the women shared, it's important to watch your route while you ride so you know if the driver deviates from it. You also want to match the car, license plate, and driver to the information provided by your app BEFORE getting into the ride. Most ride-sharing apps also offer the option to share your ride information with another person so they know where you are and what your ETA is.

Lastly, trust that gut, as Reinhart suggests. If you don't feel safe or even comfortable, that's enough to avoid the ride, get out of the ride if you're already in it, and call the police. 

Ride safely, peeps!
