Pennsylvania Reinstates Uber's Record $11.4 Million Fine

I'm no expert on this subject but it seems to me that the best way to avoid this type of fine is to obey the law by getting the proper licensing before doing business in that state. Then again, this is Uber we are talking about, they do whatever the hell they want. roll eyes (sarcastic)

By a 4-1 vote, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission rejected Uber's arguments that the penalty, six times larger than any it had imposed, was unnecessary and excessive. Uber, in a statement, said it intends to appeal to a Pennsylvania state court, and overturn what it called an "absurd" fine imposed for "technical violations." The PUC, which regulates taxi services and Uber rivals such as Lyft, had sanctioned Uber for having from February to August 2014 provided 122,998 rides in Pennsylvania without prior approval, and obstructing a state probe into its operations.
