Will Uber pay the ticket violation? Like traffic tickets and citations
The Guru Take
No, Uber will not pay for traffic tickets and citations received from traffic violations
No, Uber will not pay for traffic tickets and citations received from traffic violations. Uber has a strict rule on drivers for following the law:
Compliance with the Law: We expect drivers using the Uber app to act in compliance with all relevant state, federal and local laws and the rules of the road at all times. This includes meeting the regulatory requirements for rideshare or for-hire drivers in your area.
What leads to you losing access to your account? Uber may permanently deactivate your account for activities such as: engaging in serious illegal activity while using the Uber app; not maintaining valid vehicle registration or driver’s license; and receiving serious traffic citations, or several traffic citations that indicate unsafe driving, while using the Uber app. (source)
This policy applies to not just speeding or parking tickets, but also to citations for other activities such as soliciting rides at airports or picking up in restricted areas. Taking care of citations is the driver's responsibility.
If you are a driver, you want to take care of these citations immediately as Uber does perform background checks on a periodical basis, and if your record changes, you can be deactivated.
