It's up to you as the independent contracror and one who possess an AB licence to know the provincial laws. Provincial law states ride sharing needs to have class 1-55 as of October of this year. You might as well be complaining its Uber fault if you get a speeding ticket cause they didn't remind you of a speed zone change!?!
Several times a day on average Uber manages to send me texts and alerts about surges, hockey game and whatever — the fact they are not advising drivers of this requirement has to be for a deliberate purpose and not simply because staff are "too busy".
What would be that purpose? One thing that comes to mind is that advising drivers of yet another requirement will probably cause some to drop out of the system. Any other ideas why they aren't advising us of this?
