Uber was fined $7.3 million on Wednesday by a court in California. The ride sharing service was given the financial penalty for refusing to reveal certain information about its practices in that State to a local regulatory agency.
The company was ordered by the California Public Utilities Commission to turn over information as to how often its drivers turn down ride requests, specifically when it comes to disabled passengers.
