Re: “Police stop Uber driver citing statewide ban

Tim Conheady, a business license for a taxi or limo service IS NOT, I REPEAT, NOT $20.

YOU may be confused with the chauffers license, which, during the month of January of any year, is $20. But the remaining part of the year, it is $ the City of Charleston only. Other municipalities, charge differently.

That does not include the $25 fee for your SLED criminal background check, which by the way, forwards ALL info to NCIC, and the FBI, and continues up the chain...AND you must have your fingerprints done for record at the time you go in to get your license.....your $6 - $10 for your 10 your DMV report, your medical exam, which varies by the doctor you go to...

As far as the fees for taxi/limo, you are so very wrong....ALL businesses that drive passengers for hire, MUST HAVE a commercial insurance policy, and if you think that is $20, you are so very wrong...not to mention the costs for the auto plates,TX OR LS, state decals, which vary upon each vehicle, and then the business licenses, for each municipality you pick up in....THAT IS NOT $20
Each vehicle is then state and locally inspected...that's another fee.

That's not including the vetting of the vehicles, meter, dome lights, graphics, so that passengers DO KNOW who the REAL BUSINESSES ARE...

Then, once you get all of this together, then you must go before City council to be approved.

I would encourage you to KNOW the information of which you are posting about...

City of Charleston.

City of North Charleston.…

Google the info for PSC AND deserve to do yourhomework...

Not one UBER driver has paid any of these fees to be a PROFESSIONAL DRIVER, nor, do they have the insurance that is required by the INSURANCE COMMISSIONER OF SC for operating as a business, none the less, as a business with passengers for hire....

Re: “Matt Capobianco says Veronica "has been kidnapped," vows to fly to Oklahoma without law enforcement action

SAD, SAD SAD.....THE CAPOBIANCOS have proven that they are not fit to be anyone's were fortunate enough to have this little angel in your life for 27 months. You were fortunate enough to be at her birth...You were conieving enough to help take this child away from its father with the help and lies of the biological are to blind to see that you had the chance to make things right before you held her for the first time....You, as outspoken, Brash and as bold as you have been, could not put aside for one moment, your feelings...your wants and your you can' t just be the bridge that brought a family back together, you can't just sit back and allow this father and daughter a chance to have peace, and you be the ones to visit and cherish, and you can't just sit back and be quiet without mauling this family unit.....all this put aside, you get the child, one day one of you if not both of you wake up and decide, wow, she/he is disgusting, or god forbid, find someone who can honestly show you some morality, and its splitsville.....what then for nasty is that battle gonna be.....Dear God, let the child have her family....Find yourself a new cause and be done with yourselves....this all about you....what you think you this point, you haven't lost anything yet. Think about what you stand to gain in her eyes when all is said and done, and she herself will learn on her own how fortunate she was for a short time to have been a part of your life....Please Dear God you two, leave this child and her real family alone...Be grateful that you had the opportunity to care for this child when you did...Be grateful and learn some humility....She's gonna be ok...
