New Jersey legislators are considering adopting statewide policies to regulate ride-hailing companies like Uber. According to officials, regulations are needed to protect the safety of passengers and to prevent taxi companies from going out of business. Proposed requirements for Uber drivers in New Jersey include background checks, fingerprinting, a Social Security number trace, and more. Uber drivers in New Jersey may also be required to have $1.5 million in liability insurance. Companies, such as Uber, would also be required to allow the state Motor Vehicle Commission and the Division of Consumer Affairs to have access to company records to ensure compliance.
