A state agency is set to vote tomorrow on a measure that would regulate ridesharing companies like Lyft and Uber, ensuring their drivers were properly trained, licensed, and insured--making California the first state to do so. However, a professor emeritus from UCLA's law school says he "would predict with 99 percent certainty, that will lead to less service" because individual rideshare drivers aren't required to serve customers in poor neighborhoods, as their traditional taxi-driving brethren are.
