N.C. Bill Requires More Signage For Ride-Sharing Drivers

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — A bill requiring more signage on ride-sharing service vehicles and creating a crime for impersonating a ride-share driver was approved by a House committee.

House Majority leader Rep. John Bell from Wayne County explains how this comes about two months after a South Carolina college student was kidnapped and killed after hopping into a car she thought was the Uber she had called.

Other issues still under discussion include requiring ride-service companies to notify the state Division of Motor Vehicles within 10 days after someone is terminated as a driver and setting penalties for not displaying license plates in the front.
