Pennsylvania Operation Faces Fines, Sanctions Over Old Limos

Posted on June 26, 2015
MOOSIC, Penn. — One of our area’s largest limousine companies is in trouble. State regulators are taking steps to pull Nasser Limousine’s license, and hit the business in Moosic with record fines.


Records from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission show enforcement agents cited Nasser limousine seven times in the last nine months for safety and inspection violations.

The lawyer representing Nasser Limousine emailed Newswatch 16 saying the company is “fully cooperating with the investigation and is confident the matter will be resolved.”

    While Uber claims to have new cars, you have no oversight to see if the 8 year old vehicle you're riding in has been serviced properly, which means possible worn brakes, worn suspension, etc. They don't inspect the vehicles even when they are put in service. While background checks are nice, they don't pull everything. They also don't drug test, which is a DOT requirement. How do you know your Uber driver isn't an addict? Even college graduates are addicts. I don't want a Uber driver driving me that's under the influence of drugs or alcohol and there's no way to prevent that.
