I do not know the rules in Florida, but if you have any conviction for a violent crime, felony or misdemeanour, or any felony at all, in the past ten years, you ABSOLUTELY DO NOT get a hack face in the District of Columbia. In fact, even if the conviction is more than ten years old, you may not get that hack face, STILL. You will have to have petitioned successfully to have your civil rights restored before the Taxicab Commission will even consider letting you go through the process to get a hack face if the felony conviction is more than ten years old. Registered sex offenders do not get hack faces, ever, regardless of how old the conviction is. If your felony conviction was for a violent crime or fraud, odds are that you will not get that hack face, regardless of how far back the conviction was.Know how many felons drive cabs?
It isn't journalism. It is a kind of op ed rant.Actually this guy missed the boat a bit. Lyft did half of that list and no one says a word about the cute pink mustache company. Know how many felons drive cabs? I've met dozens over the twelve years I drove cabs in three different cities. If the pay truly sucked, drivers would quit n deliver pizza. I can go on and n but seriously, why all the hate.
Sure the CEO is an ass but last time I checked, so is Donald and many other big time CEOs. Lazy journalism if you ask me
I agree with the sentiment. It isn't so much an issue of a hiring of convicted felons that has me concerned. It has more to do with the idea that Uber in most cities is a kind of free for all. There are no rules a community can place upon them, zero ways to curb their behavior. According to Travis, any attempt to regulate Uber is a sign of being behind the times.Very few felons are lucky enough to obtain a hack license.
Not sure about the flood of uber (alleged) rapists.
They may not have BEEN felons.
They surely are now.
