Uber Driver Kidnaps Passenger to Avoid Obeying the Law – NY STOPS Lyft
An Uber driver refused to obey the law. It’s more lawlessness putting people at risk. There is a trend of lawlessness by people who feel they are above the law and this government and refuse to be governed by the rules of it
The NY Post writes in “My Uber Driver Kidnapped Me!”
The Uber car nearly smashed into other cars several times, but the driver told Simonetti that if he stopped, he would get slapped with a $2,000 fine by the inspector.
More proof that Uber drivers don’t obey the law like the rest of us.
Now New Yorkers are being protected by AG Eric Schneiderman -” Ride Sharing Lyft’s New York City Plans Postponed “on ABC News Website:
“The company operates “in open defiance” of state and local licensing and insurance laws, according to the suit filed in Manhattan. Authorities allege Lyft began operating in Buffalo and Rochester without authorizations in April and already violates various laws, another issue they expect to further argue Monday.”
Lyft has a HISTORY of ignoring state and local laws as seen during it’s refusal to comply with Virginia’s cease and desist notice.
My question is still this: Lyft and Uber drivers are independant contractors, so how any of Uber and Lyft’s policies are mandated over them boggles the mind. Further more, as IC’s aren’t they required to have business licenses as well to pay city and municipal taxes?
Half the independent contractor rules aren’t applied to these drivers. And they need to be.
