This week on the Driving Law podcast, I speak with Paul Doroshenko about the new BC Government report into ride-hailing services. The Report has several recommendations, but the most interesting aspect of it is Transportation Minister Claire Trevana’s insistence that drivers obtain a Class 4 license before being permitted to drive an Uber or other ride-sharing vehicle. Paul and I discuss the pitfalls of this and whether this is actually a blessing in disguise.
Then, we share the story of our recent cross-border excursion to purchase the entire surplus stock of Intox EC/IR and EC/IR II breathalyzer instruments from the state of Illinois, why we did it, and what we intend to do next. I also present Paul with a few of the mean Tweets and comments made about our decision, and we respond directly.
I’m also pleased to announce that the Driving Law podcast is now part of the Cannabis Media Collective!
