Tell the CPUC: Uber-rich corporations should be liable for death and injury [Action complete]
The rise of Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft, providing services similar to taxicabs but without the same protections, has opened a dangerous gap in public safety and security – one that you can help persuade the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to remedy if you act now.
On July 10, the CPUC will consider a proposal to clarify insurance regulations governing TNCs. It would impose a million-dollar commercial coverage requirement on a TNC as soon as a driver opens an online “app” to signal availability to pick up paying passengers – “app on,” as it’s called – and the requirement would remain in force until “app off,” when the driver is no longer available for hire.
