Uber Has Tough Road in New Jersey

Uber Has Tough Road in New Jersey

Uber is a rideshare operation that sends its ride requests to drivers through a phone application.

Some of Uber’s drivers use their personal vehicles. The company came to New Jersey in 2013, and its safety requirements have come into question.

CBS New York reports that the New Jersey Assembly Transportation Committee has passed legislation requiring ridesharing companies to get a permit from the Motor Vehicle Commission, and to confirm driver’s licenses and automobile insurance.

According to an Associated Press report in The Asbury Park Press, part of the proposed bill wants Uber to provide $250,000 in insurance liability coverage for drivers from the time they open the phone application to hunt for fares until the time they leave the passenger at their destination and close the app.
