    The insurance industry needs to separate legitimate transportation companies that run new vehicles and have real drivers behind the wheel. And the mom and pop old junk vehicles to pay hire rates !!!! Why should legitimate operators be punished by idiot operators???? In california we are all having to deal with new limo laws because an idiot opertor with junk vehicles had a random driver that did not relize there was a fire and nurses died !!!!!! 20 plus junk party bus deaths !!!!! Start talking to your insurance agent, separate the real operators and the idiot operators.... make them pay hire rates since they have all the deaths in their junk vehicle.
