The Supreme Administrative Court has affirmed a fine imposed on a UBER driver 6757911for using his private car unregistered for commercial use to take passengers and charge for the service.

The court ruling said the authorities received a tip-off that Hsiao used his private car to provide cab-calling service on Christmas Eve in 2014. Consequently the Taipei Motor Vehicle Supervision Office (TMVSO) imposed a fine of NT$50,000 (US$1,500) and suspension of his license plate for two months on Hsiao for bleaching the Highway Act by running transportation operation without permit.

Hsiao disagreed and insisted that he was an occasional provider of car-pool service to make extra money, which should not be considered as a business operation. Therefore, he filed an administrative lawsuit against the TMVSO.   [FULL  STORY]
