WCBS Remembers Nina Kapur 1 Year After Her DeathThis weekend marks one year since the death of our colleague and friend, reporter Nina Kapur.

CBS2 Investigates: Where Were The Rules For Revel?Ride-sharing moped company Revel launched in 2018 in Brooklyn and at the onset of the March 2020 COVID pandemic, amid concerns of catching the virus on public transit, it rapidly expanded to every borough except Staten Island. By summer, there were thousands of complaints to the company and the city about lawless riders zipping through sidewalks, parks and highways where they were prohibited. CBS2 documented riders below the legal driving age and mopeds filled with more than the maximum two persons. Several doctors reported an onslaught of emergency room calls resulting from Revel accidents and inexperienced drivers. No one from the city could explain to CBS2 why Revel only required a vehicle driver's license for operators when NY state classifies the moped as a type of motorcycle. CBS2 uncovered that no city approval was required for the company to operate and there was no safety oversight. The company did not need to require drivers take lessons or provide a barometer to measure helmet usage and enforce it. Records from the first half of 2020 showed little enforcement from the company and the NYPD. Days before a July CBS2 investigation was to air, the first Revel-related death occurred, and tragically it was a beloved colleague, reporter Nina Kapur. We dug deeper, highlighted safety flaws, and demanded answers from Revel and NYC and NY state government. Still, within weeks, two more riders died. Revel shut down for one month and was forced to look at the flaws we had been highlighting. Following our reporting, the city admitted it dropped the ball, and systemic rideshare safety changes were made.
