I also take them a lot and (so far, fingers crossed) have never had a safety problem with them. My trick with them is to observe how fast or erratic the driver seems coming up the block before I get on!
That last line...! Jitneys might be (relatively) safe for those riding one, but if you are driving or riding behind one, you would be well advised to not do so. Those guys are aggressive about picking up fares and will often stop on a dime, or do the "slash" change of lane. I hate jitneys and the way they behave on the road. I get that they fill a need for a lot of people, but there really ought to be more oversight of them.
