Uber’s fraudulent insurance coverage policy:

Uber uses what is called a ‘supplement line’ policy.

These are basically insurance coverage policies that cover only what the service provider’s (Uber’s) contracting says it will cover.  If the contracting happens to invalidate all coverage as section 5 of Uber’s own TOS does, then the policy never really has to be used for anything that may burden the service provider’s overhead.

ubers insurance policy.

But of course Uber can always claim they “have” a one million dollar coverage policy.  The fact that it is more often invalidated by the same contract anyone driving for or riding in an Uber signs is simply an oversight that Uber maintains they should not be liable for.

Message from Uber management discriminating against Uber riders just for being cab drivers.

Screen Capture taken Feb-13-2015 Lewis-Burke LLC is a Washington DC lobbying firm. A ‘Public Policy Associate’ does everything a lobbyist does and is paid for it. Calling a lobbyist by a different name doesn’t change the fact that it is still lobbying. Jocobs has failed to properly register as a paid Lobbyist in Madison. The fine for lobbying fraud is up to $5000 for the offender and $1000 for the company or interest they represent.

The individual Lake tried to file the restraining order against was wearing a recording device during the exchange in which Lake falsely testified that the individual threatened him.  Lake neglected to even show up in court for the hearing.

Uber driver admits he is committing insurance fraud:



List of Unregistered, uncertified and UNINSURED Uber and Lyft drivers currently operating in Madison, WI.

These drivers have not registered their vehicles as commercial transportation with the DOT or made proper notifications to their own insurance providers to validate any coverage from their own providers or Uber.  Some are either out of state or outside the city of Madison.  Some also carry registrations for vehicles that DO NOT match the plate on the vehicle.

Without proper notification to the DOT or the driver’s own insurance provider the driver HAS NO VALID INSURANCE to cover themselves or any passenger while driving for Uber.

This list represents the current registration status on each vehicle as of 2-23-2015  Most have been operating in Madison as long as four months or longer as Uber and Lyft vehicles.

 Sedan plate number 811-VHJ  Being driven for UBER.

This driver illegally stopped and blocked traffic in a no-stop lane right after a light and sat in the active lane for nearly two minuets to pick up a passenger from a building that has a pickup parking lane right around the next corner.

Lyft/Uber Toyota Prius 2010 721-VDV  Uber & Lyft Driver Kenneth Dewey, attempted to file false harassment complaint against a Madison cab driver after the cab driver took a ride with Dewey on the Lyft service before Dewey purchased the Prius to drive for both Lyft and Uber. During the ride Dewey informed the cab driver that he did not have proper insurance coverage.  The cab driver complained to Lyft and refused the charges for the ride.  On the same evening the cab driver and two others witnessed Dewey  speeding by the front door of the cab driver’s home.   Six months later Dewey was again illegally parked in a private lot near the cab drivers home, this time in the black prius AFTER the cab driver had moved.  When the cab driver complained to the driver, not knowing it was the same driver now in a different vehicle, Dewey sped away and then attempted to file a stalking complaint against the cab driver with MPD.  The complaint was later thrown out.  Three months after trying to file the complaint against the cab driver, Dewey stalked him to a political rally and sat next to the cab driver at the rally for the entire event attempting twice to converse with the cab driver.  Before driving the black prius, Dewey was driving a green Honda SUV (plate number VDM-332) for Lyft which was photographed by other witnesses unloading passengers TWICE while illegally parked and without even putting hazard lights on.

Dewey STILL drives for Uber despite complaints about the stalking and endangering his own passengers and other motorists.
