A local councillor wants ride sharing vehicles to clearly identify themselves.

Riley Brockington, of River Ward, wants Uber and Lyft vehicles to be marked with a sticker in effort to improve public safety. This comes after a man in Ottawa was charged with two counts of sexual assault after posing as an Uber driver last week.

Police have also said that was not an isolated incident.
