1. The way it was working in Miami is drivers would get 2 tickets when they were stopped, I think a. No taxi license; b. Illegal ride for hire. Both are $1,010 so a total of $2,020 per stop;
2. The laws escalate from civil penalties to criminal charges upon the 3rd such violation (I.e. 2nd stop could be criminal)
3. This also means 2 stops and you are out from your Uber driving
4. I don't think Uber has actually paid anyone's fines, at least it appears all these years later articles say the fines are still outstanding.
