    The question has always been but never answered...Who pays the commercial insurance. As independent contractors...the I/C must pay it exclusively and not be under the cover of uber as a whole. Uber does not claim the drivers as employees, therefore the drivers are 100% responsible to bore their own insurance cost. I don't understand why this is so hard to realize. Every driver is to have their own policy inside their vehicle along side their registration. They should also be incorporated so they can file their 1099. Part time or full time...doesnt matter
