Uber and Lyft back in Austin after vingerafdrukcheck is reversed
Uber and Lyft are after a year back in Austin, Texas. The taxi stopped there after drivers in accordance with a local law requires their fingerprints to be scanned.
That law is now reversed, reports the Los Angeles Times.
With the scans was checked whether the drivers have a criminal record. Uber and Lyft suggested, however, that they have their drivers well enough controlled. The scans would only for more complications, worry, making it harder for new drivers to find.
Governor Greg Abbott signed Monday a law stating that the state and not the local authorities define the rules for taxi services like Uber and Lyft.
The regulations of the state of Texas required taxi services, however, to investigate whether their drivers have a criminal history, but here they don’t have fingerprints for.
