Lyft fined $200K in Colo. for using driver with serious felonies
Posted by Staff
The Denver Post:

Ride-sharing service Lyft paid the Colorado Public Utilities Commission $224,375 in civil fines to settle allegations that it allowed a driver with serious felonies to transport passengers for more than a year.

The actual fine was $448,750, but it was cut in half after Lyft admitted the violation and agreed to pay within 10 days last month.

“The company signed the civil penalty admitting liability and paid 50 percent of the amount to settle the case, per our rules,” said Terry Bote, a spokesman with the PUC, which oversees ride-sharing services.
