Legislation is pending at the federal level in the United States after a young woman was kidnapped and killed in 2019. The prominent case of Samantha Josephson (21), who had ordered an Uber but then got into a different car where the driver allegedly used childproof locks to prevent her from escaping, led to proposed legislation to improve protection for drivers and passengers. In South Africa, in April, Yolandi Botes (34) took a cab from the airport and was never seen again. Carte Blanche tracks the experiences of unsuspecting young women who mistakenly followed imposters posing as cab drivers but, once in the car, realised the danger. #CarteBlanche
