Scores of workers for Uber and Lyft were driving passengers around Portland, Oregon, despite having offenses ranging from traffic violations to criminal records that should have barred them from doing business as a TNC driver, according to local authorities.

The Portland Department of Transportation confirmed to ABC News they suspended or revoked the permits for 168 ride-share drivers in Portland since 2015, including two Lyft drivers who were convicted felons -- one convicted of sexual assault and the other for assault with intent to murder.
