Unverified drivers looking to take advantage of a taxi and rideshare shortage are increasing their presence on the streets of Las Vegas, according to state officials, who said the issue is leading to robberies and other crimes.

A local transportation leader said the supply and demand issues are tempting desperate riders during busy ridership periods, resulting in precarious situations outside of large event venues, specifically.

Even if it may be convenient, officials advised people against taking an unverified ride, as it makes them vulnerable for being a victim of a crime.
