KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Uber and Lyft suspended a driver over the weekend who secretly livestreamed hundreds of passengers onto the video platform Twitch, according to a report.

After talking with the Post-Dispatch, Gargac asked the reporter to not use his full name, something he had revealed on his own videos.

Viewers would comment on how the women looked and rate their attractiveness, while others would mock what the passengers were talking about or the neighborhoods where they lived.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Mr Gargac streamed videos of passengers inside his vehicle to video-streaming website Twitch. Missouri law only requires one party to know about a recording - and allows recording where persons would have no reasonable expectations of privacy.

Gargac had placed a small sign on a passenger window that said the vehicle was equipped with recording devices and that "consent" was given by entering the auto.

Gargac was suspended by Uber on Saturday following a profile report into his behavior by the St Louis Post Dispatch.

"The livestream and the Twitch and all that is really more secondary than the security that I feel knowing if something happens, immediately there can be a response versus hopefully you'll find my truck in a ditch three weeks later", he said. "We got in an Uber at 2 a.m.to be safe, and then I find out that, because of that, everything I said in that auto is online and people are watching me". People were sometimes named in the videos, the Post-Dispatch said, while homes were also shown.

Jason Gargac has driven for both Uber and rival ridesharing service Lyft since March, but he also ran an online video stream while driving passengers around St. Louis.

Twitch explained that they "do not comment on terms of service violations in regards to a specific individuals" and "do not allow people to share content that invades other's privacy". Gargac also said he earned about $3,500 over the past five months from viewer subscriptions, donations and tips collected on Twitch.

Uber and Lyft have placed one of their drivers on suspension after finding out he had been filming customers and streaming the footage online.

"When these laws were drafted and enacted, I don't think any of these states could have envisioned what we have in this case, where you have livestreaming video", he said. "I didn't like it", he said.
