Annually, each taxi driver submit to the county, where he operates:
A background check.
A renewal package, making sure such the driver is not a drug addict, a felon, a DUI, a criminal, a good moral character person who is not a case to the public.
If this driver ever drive 15 miles over the speed limit posted, he’s automatically disqualified as taxi driver because of a reckless activity.
Vehicles must be in good working condition at all times, inspected annually by a certified mechanic, before renewal. The county determine the taxi fare, so the customer doesn’t overcharge and the driver doesn’t underpaid.
An app that connects drivers and passengers.
A so-called service company without regulations, pick up people for a fare with the app instead of a taximeter. Sometimes charged more than taxi fares, operating in our counties, city and suburbs where our authorities don’t have any jurisdiction over this movement because it’s a state regulated business. Give me a brake!!!!!!!!!!
This differs from other modes of transport where the pick-up and drop-off locations are determined by an app, uninsured shared-ride personal vehicle. The passenger doesn’t have any idea, when accident occurs who takes care medical payment and other liabilities .
Ask yourself these Questions:
What is Uber’s phone number?
What is Uber’s business address, city and state?
How do I reach Uber’s personal?
Ask the driver for the insurance certificate and the coverage limit as a commercial vehicle.
