CA Bill Would Force TNCs To Provide More Driver Insurance

Posted on May 14, 2014

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- AB 2293, sponsored by State Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla, D-Concord, would require services including Lyft, Sidecar and UberX to provide $1 million of insurance for drivers anytime their applications are open, and it would have to be primary insurance, not excess insurance, which is what was required by the California Public Utilities Commission when it created rules for transportation network companies late last year.

    Why? Why? Why? If Uber would change its name and change the color of their cars that may be OK to Regulators in Miami , A taxi ins. $50000, a (PMC) van $100000and a Black Car Or Limo$300000 the 3 vehicles may have same GVW, so it may be the color. When Carey was big , No body ,but no body said anything the difference was that Carey owned their vehicles and Miami Dade County Gave them in 2002 FREE licenses , 55 of them. Why not do the same again? This info is from Public Records Request of RER. LCT please investigate? (305)375.2460
