Rep. D’Amico raises bar for ride-sharing drivers

State Rep. John D’Amico recently helped pass legislation to strengthen and expand driver application standards for Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing companies. The D’Amico-backed House Bill 4416 measure aims to refine background checks to ensure that prohibited drivers can’t be hired. Ride-sharing companies are not allowed to hire applicants who have had three moving violations in three years or one major violation, such as attempting to evade the police, in the past year. Drivers who have been convicted of driving under the influence or for committing fraud and other violent felonies in the past seven years also are disqualified.
