Lili Reinhart has shared a terrifying story to warn her fans about the importance of checking the validity of Uber and taxi drivers before entering a car. Yesterday, the Riverdale star tweeted telling her fans about her experience arriving at an airport and being escorted into a potentially dangerous person’s car.

“PSA: I was just ushered to a car by someone posing to be an airport cab/Uber driver. 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,” she wrote. “Please pay attention and make smart decisions out there.”

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

Lili’s warning comes just two months after a 21-year-old University of South Carolina student was murdered after getting into a car she thought was her Uber ride. Since her tragic death, the parents of the student have been trying to draw attention to driver safety with a campaign named #WhatsMyName. The New York Times reports that there have been at least two dozen accounts of assault linked to rideshare driver impersonation in the past few years.

Fans of the 22-year-old actress replied to her tweet praising her for spreading awareness about driver safety and also expressing their happiness that she is safe.

Fellow actress Madeline Hill also sent her well-wishes to Lili after the incident.

Make sure to always pay attention when getting an Uber or cab and ensure the driver’s information is clearly displayed and matching your device.
