The Taxi and Paratransit Association of California (TPAC) has applied for a rehearing of the CPUC’s decision allowing ride services to operate. This Thursday, the CPUC will decide whether it will hold a rehearing. We call upon the CPUC to rehear and reverse its flawed and unlawful decision. When a driver for Uber killed a little girl New Year’s Eve, the company denied responsibility. As a result, the CPUC has proposed rules changes for TNC insurance. But the proposed rules allow gaps in insurance coverage that leave the public unprotected. Ride service drivers must be required to carry commercial livery insurance providing $1 million coverage under all circumstances and at all times. Unless ride service drivers have the same insurance requirements as taxis, coverage gaps will persist, the public will remain unprotected and drivers will have a huge incentive to commit insurance fraud. A company called Breeze is leasing cars to Uber and Lyft drivers. This is an outrageous violation of the CPUC’s rules for ride services. Those rules require drivers to use their personal vehicles. We call upon the CPUC to issue an immediate Cease-and Desist Order to Breeze and any other company or individual leasing vehicles to ride service drivers. And they must enforce their Order. If they do not, San Francisco must step in and put an end to this brazenly illegal practice.
