A Consumer Reports articled dated January 27, 2014 notes that those who use their private vehicles as part-time taxis via transport network companies (TNCs) run the risk of voiding their insurance policies. Lately, TNC usage by means of smartphone apps like Lyft has been on the rise due to the cost savings and environmental benefits.
Other motorists need to be careful around “part-time taxis” employed via these TNCs. Part-time taxi drivers are at risk of having no insurance coverage to speak of, and this could make them liabilities on the road. Those caught up in accidents involving TNC motorists will want the services of an auto accident attorney in Sacramento from a trusted firm like Carter Wolden Curtis.
