Who Should Be Qualified To Inspect TNC Vehicles?

Posted on January 15, 2015
California regulators require that personal vehicles driven for ride-hailing services be inspected before drivers start taking paid rides and annually thereafter. The state issues a checklist of 19 items from brakes to seat belts that must be examined, and says the companies or authorized third-party mechanics should perform the inspections.

    Are you kidding us? Uber and Lyft are technology companies....remember. What are they doing in the involvement of vehicle inspections on the independent contractors cars. It's the independent contractor that bears the responsibility to have their own cars inspected and by a ASE certified mechanic. And then you think just anybody can just look at a vehicle and call it safe. Thats like having my lawn care neighbor perform a C section surgery in his garage. If Uber and Lyft are providing the inspections, that kinda sounds like control and that might make them employers now. Not a tech company. Morons
