Uber and Lyft drivers could soon face tougher background checks, thanks to bill headed to Gov. Jerry Brown

The bill would prohibit the companies from hiring drivers who are registered sex offenders, have been convicted of violent felonies or, within the last seven years, have a driving-under-the-influence conviction.

…The bill also mandates a maximum $5,000 fine each time a ride-hailing company violates the background-check rules.”
