Uber and more targeted by LA and San Francisco DAs

Uber and its competitors Lyft and Sidecar have many fans but no lack of troubles, the latter of which tends to be in a constant state of ebb and flow. All three aforementioned companies are facing their latest challenge in Los Angeles and San Francisco, where the district attorneys have fired off letters alleging that an investigation has revealed violations of state law.

The information comes from The Wall Street Journal, which is reporting that certain demands are being made, and failure by the companies to meet these requirements will result in an injunction being put on the services. At the core of the issues is, again, concerns about driver vetting.

The district attorneys claim all three companies are misleading their customers into believing that drivers are properly screened for past criminal records. For Uber and Lyft in particular, it is said there are failures in acquiring the proper licenses for airport pick ups and drop offs, and in meeting taxi meter inspection requirements. Such information comes from an unnamed source.

San Francisco in particular is wanting to put an end to the companies’ carpooling services, which allows customers to split fees by sharing rides — something hailed as an effective way to reduce traffic congestion on roads and reduce environmental impact.

What’s Up With Zuck’s Squad of SF Parking Spot Squatters?

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly been paying people to sit in parked cars overnight near the construction site of the San Francisco property he and wife Priscilla Chan have been renovating for the past 17 months.

The purpose? To save extra parking spaces for workers when they arrive for their day shifts—beyond the four or five already blocked off by the city for the construction crew’s equipment, according to the local CBS affiliate.

Known to neighbors as “Fort Zuckerberg,” the $10 million renovation near Dolores Park has riled up neighbors who have endured months and months of “Saturday mornings filled with the sounds of nearly 50 construction workers and pounding jackhammers,” the news station reported.

The parking spot squatters add a new wrinkle to the story. Finding a place to park a car is notoriously frustrating in many San Francisco neighborhoods. Having a small army of mercenaries staked out in the precious few available appears to be seriously ticking off residents.

“People, usually in pairs, regularly sit in parked cars overnight near Zuckerburg’s home on 21st street near Dolores Street,” CBS cited neighbor Trafton Bean as saying.

The news station reported that some of the alleged parking spot squatters, mainly young people, said they “were hired by Zuckerberg to hold additional parking spots aside from the 4-5 allotted for construction vehicles during the morning.”

One such squatter “had what looked like a college textbook to study while they waited in the dark,” CBS cited Bean as saying.

Zuckerberg and Chan reportedly purchased a 1920s-era “pied a terre” in the Dolores Heights neighborhood back in 2012. They are upgrading it to a six-bedroom home with brand new fiber optic cables running to the house, a project that’s required “tearing up the sidewalks” around the property, according to SFGate.

The news site laid out some of the rooms and additions being built in the four-story Fort Zuckerberg, including a media room, wine room, wet bar, new landscaping, additions to the rear and side of the house, and a “new basement garage, complete with a turntable pad so cars can get in and out more easily.”
