If Uber can sort and assign drivers to riders by their vehicle types, (there are 5 types in Detroit area- UberX, UberXL, UberSelect UberBlack & UberSUV) then Uber should be responsible for sorting and assigning drivers by their correct driver-licenses for rider pickups. For example, airports are ticketing and towing improperly licensed Uber drivers. There's absolutely ZERO reason why Uber should be allowed to assign airport pickups to drivers without the proper licenses, commercial plates and insurance requirements of the airport. Which Uber does this all the time, assigns improperly licensed drivers to the airport. AND without disclosing to that driver the risks for having a bad day.
