Uber Fined $8.9M For Hiring Drivers With Felonies

I'm not really sure why this comes as a surprise to anyone. This has always been Uber's MO...do whatever we want, throw money and lawyers at it later.

The PUC said the drivers should have been disqualified. They had issues ranging from felony convictions to driving under the influence and reckless driving. In some cases, drivers were working with revoked, suspended or canceled licenses, the state said. A similar investigation of smaller competitor Lyft found no violations.
