Colorado Fines Uber $9M For Hiring Drivers With Bad Records


Colorado has slapped Uber with a nearly $9 million fine for letting dozens of drivers with serious criminal or motor vehicle offenses work for the ride-hailing firm, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission launched an investigation into the embattled transportation company earlier this year, after a passenger claimed that he was assaulted by his Uber driver in Vail.

The commission reportedly found that 60 Uber employees in Colorado had previous felony convictions, including a habitual offender, a former prison escape and drunken driving violations. Read more at The Hill.
