NY: Sex offenders banned from driving for Uber, Lyft

When Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers approved a ride-hailing law in April, it would have allowed certain low-level sex offenders to drive for companies like Uber and Lyft.

That’s no longer the case.

Cuomo signed a bill late last week block all sex offenders from driving for ride-hailing companies for as long as they are listed on the state’s registry, regardless of the severity of their crime and how long ago it was committed. Full Article

    I no longer feel wanted, welcomed or accepted in America, much less loved or respected.

    All because of the lawmakers exploiting unwarranted fear and the presumption of risk.

    Do we yet have enough evidence that the following is in fact not true?

    “Contrary to the Ninth Circuit’s assertion, the record contains no evidence that the Act has led to substantial occupational or housing disadvantages for former sex offenders that would not have otherwise occurred… The holding that the registration system is parallel to probation or supervised release is rejected because, in contrast to probationers and supervised releasees, offenders subject to the Act are free to move where they wish and to live and work as other citizens, with no supervision.” – Chief Justice Kennedy, Smith v Doe, 2003

    Can’t be a teacher. Incredibly difficult to obtain a business licence. Can’t transport people. Can’t work for a moving company. Can’t live within X feet of Y. Can’t be in many placed. Can’t freely travel across the world.

    Non of these things are faced by other “free” citizens that’s not related to monetary issues.

    hey does anyone no for sure if the ride share lyft bans all sex offenders in CA. It states on their site they do background checks at the minimum of 7 years but does say if we would be banned outright. I am just curious as it could be a good way to eatn money while I am going to school.
