I always chuckle when I hear this. Why does everyone think you have to regulate Uber to level the playing field? Has anyone ever thought about de-regulating the taxi industry? If the taxi companies complain they have to do this and that and Uber doesn't, why not stop requiring the extra hoops? This will also "Level the Playing Field". I realize there are some very good rules, but there are many that are BS to discourage competition and raise money for the local governments.

As far as caring for the safety of the passengers, this is total BS also. If they cared about the safety of the passengers then demand the drivers do their job better. Instead of requiring more insurance, hold the drivers up to a higher standard. Actually enforce the long haul rules. Limit the number of speeding tickets they can get in a time span. Drivers cited for reckless driving should be suspended or fired out right depending on the circumstances. If they want professional drivers, then create an actual driving class with practical experience, not just a certificate anyone with $50.00 can buy.

If there were really professional drivers out there, accidents would go down and this would alleviate the need for so much insurance.
They should start with FBI fingerprint, 6 to 12 month drug test and every 4 months after that, age limit, test for any other health problems etc, that would eliminate a third of cab drivers and probably more than half of uber and lyft drivers. Period.

Thanks,
What age limits do you think should be imposed? I agree on the fingerprinting and drug testing. I would even pay for it myself. It would be tax deductible anyway. BTW! Welcome back...I hope your vacation was good.
Thanks, the other day I saw this cab driver like in his 70s or more, driving really slow, you know that driving fast or slow is not good, I've seen uber and lyft drivers that are slowing traffic, maybe a good test for good reflections in a crowded Street and at a certain speed would work, what you think,
