As an Uber or Lyft driver, you rely on your license and legal ability to drive to make an income. Traffic tickets are not just annoying — they can threaten your ability to drive professionally. Once you have a certain number of points on your driver’s license, your insurance rate can go up and you may even face license suspension. If you have received traffic tickets which are threatening your driving privileges, turn to Katz Lawyers.

Lyft & Uber Speeding Ticket Policy
Uber and Lyft have strict moving violation policies that include speeding tickets: any driver with more than 3 moving violations in the past 3 years may be in-eligible to drive for either company. Additionally, it does depend on the traffic violation as some add more points to your license than others.
We can represent clients who face penalties from other traffic offenses as well, including:
- Reckless driving
- Running stop signs/red lights
- Failure to yield
- Improper lane changes
- Malfunctioning taillights/headlights
- Improper turns
- Following too closely
- Hit and run
Besides the fines and annoyance of a traffic offense, as an Uber or Lyft driver, you face other concerns if you have received multiple traffic tickets. When you work as a rideshare driver, a traffic ticket can not only mean criminal and civil penalties, but you could lose your ability to drive for Uber or Lyft as well. In some cases, Uber and Lyft decide that drivers with too many traffic offenses on their record are a liability and terminate them. This is why it is so important to hire a lawyer to help you fight your traffic ticket, keep your license, and maintain your rideshare driving privileges.
