New car service begins

Uber, the app-based ride-share automobile program, expanding into Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach in August. The program allows users to hail drivers and pay for their fares from their smartphones.


The service has caused problems in Miami where county ordinances require drivers to hire to have a chauffeur’s license. Police ticketed drivers and impounded vehicles associated with the app this summer.


Uber carries an insurance policy with up to $1 million in commercial coverage to supplement a vehicle’s private insurance, according to news reports.
