That leaves much of the insurance burden on the drivers, who are using their own personal cars and their own personal car insurance (PCI).

The consequence is huge:

You may next be thinking “So, what happens if the insurance company successfully denies the claim for my UBER driving accident?”.  In that case, you as the vehicle owner or operator, if a separate person, are completely exposed to whatever verdict the Court elects to impose, which will typically attach your personal assets, home, savings and potentially your future earnings. – CAUTION: If you are an UBER driver, you may NOT be protected!

Now, do you want to apply to drive for Lyft or Uber / Uberx in Nashville??!!! Do you have enough assets to cover you  (i.e. your house, your car, your stuff) if you have an accident? And Nashville is full of them!
