Recently a bill passed in the Nevada Legislature that will allow Uber and Lyft to operate in Nevada. As an owner of a limousine company here in Las Vegas, I am outraged by this result. There is a lot of confusion of what will be allowed and won’t be allowed if Uber and Lyft do start operating again in Las Vegas.
Don’t Trust Just Anyone To Provide You Transportation
With the new bill passing, Uber and Lyft will be able to start employing more drivers in the Las Vegas valley to be able to provide transportation. In April of this year, in Denver, an Uber driver was arrested for burglary after giving a customer a ride to the airport and then going back to the pick up location and breaking into the customer’s home. How did this happen you may ask. According to an Uber spokeswoman the driver “had no criminal record prior to the incident” and therefore he passed an Uber background check.
Protect your home and valuables by hiring a trusted company like Five Star Limousine to provide transportation and don’t just give your address and personal information to anyone.
Our Insurance will Cover You
Another stipulation to the impending bill is that any driver that is providing transportation services must have continuous insurance of at least $1.5 million for death and bodily injury. That is a lot of money to have on a normal insurance policy and looks to be one of the issues with trusting an Uber or Lyft driver.
At Five Star Limousine all of our drivers are insured and all of our vehicles are insured so you don’t have to worry and can have peace of mind knowing that in the case that something happens, you will be covered by insurance and not have to worry about if your Uber or Lyft driver is following all of the requirements. Uber and Lyft contend that they shouldn’t have to be overseen by the Nevada Transportation Agency and the Nevada Taxicab Authority. This could be disastrous for you and anyone you are riding with should something happen.
