What Happens When You Get a Speeding Ticket as an Uber Driver

Hochman BlogWhen driving for Uber, the popular rideshare service that started in 2009, you must have your own car insurance. Uber, as a company, carries their own additional insurance to protect them should civil cases arise. However, there are some penalties when talking about minor infractions (speeding tickets or some at-fault accidents).

Whether you have already experienced an accident or infraction and need immediate help, or need the name number of where to go in case one does happen, contact a red light camera violation attorney from Hochman & Goldin, P.A.

Both Uber and Lyft, a competitor that started in 2012, have similar implications for what happens if a driver gets a speeding ticket while working. However, your rights do not change when working, and it does not mean you will lose your job. While customer complaints may follow, both companies have a policy that states drivers must have three or fewer moving traffic violations.

A defensive driving course may help with first and second offensives. Taking this course may get the infraction off your driving record. Keep in mind that just paying the ticket will keep it on your driving record and keep you at risk of your job (paying a ticket is pleading guilty).
