Back in Hongcouver, Canukistan, you are required to have a specific license (class 2 iirc), and additional insurance as a "vehicle for hire" to operate.

The thing is these Ubers have no adequate commercial liability insurance. Use them at your own risk.

No you're not. Commercial is different than Non Commercial.

Afraid not. Any vehicle used to transport a person(s)on a pay for use basis is deemed a commercial vehicle. You know how it is, city hall, and the province HAVE to get their ends met FIRST.

On a related side note I was reading the a magazine called "The Big Chilli" that the ony vehicles (for hire) in BKK licensed to carry passengers (cars, vans, bikes) all will have yellow license plates. Good to know considering some of the issues related to transpost in this country.

Uber a risky ride for passengers, states warn

California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Idaho, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Utah have all issued warnings about possible insurance risks from using rideshare services.
Jason Herrera knows this only too well. He and a co-worker survived a crash in an UberX car that left them with injuries and unpaid medical bills.

This is true. There was an incident in SF not too long ago where an Uber driver caused an accident and his regular insurance would not cover it because he was driving for Uber and therefore needed to carry commercial insurance when on the clock.

The thing is.....I see the London cabbies as having at least a proper argument
They provide a nice clean taxi, professional, courteous drivers and knowledgable
The fact the US taxis are complaining when they shoved horrible service down our throats for decades
