Default Uber

Just out of curiosity: Do you think that all Uber and Lyft drivers are honest enough to let their insurance companies know, that they are driving for hire?

Or, is this a requirement of Uber and Lyft?

Have to believe these companies require their drivers to be insured.

But human nature being what it is anything is possible.

Uber is Toast, with a capital T.
Hemorrhaging money so far this year at a rate that will set a new record from last year, which set a record from the one before, and the one before that...
Scams are expensive to maintain and maintaining them with Venture Capital is a sure way to get cut off.
Heads have already rolled, from the very top through several levels down.

Don't think for a minute Uber requires anything and in return they distance themselves from any and all responsibility.

I know that they require insurance but do the drivers let their insurance company know that they are driving for hire?
I can't imagine there are that many drivers with integrity.

Well if it was me I would tell them because in case there was an accident I'll be in a lot of trouble if I didn't. And accidents are always possible. They say half of all drivers here in New Jersey near Philly don't have insurance. Bad for them and bad for anyone they get in an accident with.
