Regulators Adopt New Safety Rules for Uber, Lyft
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California regulators on Thursday adopted new safety rules for ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft that will not require their drivers be fingerprinted as part of background checks, rejecting a push by the taxi industry. The California Public Utilities Commission in a meeting in San Francisco unanimously voted to approve the safety regulations it proposed last month after a year-long review spearheaded by the taxi industry.
