A note from a colleague

This past week committee Chair Rafael Millares attended the latest Traffic Court Rules Committee meeting held in Orlando. This committee meets to discuss existing rules and future amendments regarding Florida traffic laws. After the meeting, our office received some positive feedback about Rafael.



I wanted to let you know that in my 6 years on this committee, I cannot remember a more well organized, well explained, and well run meeting. The way you explained the prior status of rules and votes as well as a brief explanation of the procedures as we went along was super effective and helpful. You also have a way of clarifying arguments and simplifying issues that tend to get complicated and off topic during discussion. You always reigned it in and kept the committee on task.  I feel that in years past, the meetings were often begun as if everyone understood all the issues which was not always the case. To that end, breaking up the rules for detailed review into subcommittee was genius as it allowed all the members to focus on a small chunk and not get overwhelmed by the volume of all the rules.
Thanks so much,



Taxi Litigation Millares Law

Uber drivers claim victory after Miami-Dade commission meeting

Uber drivers are claiming victory in Miami-Dade County after a commission meeting today resulted in the withdrawal of a Uber ordinance proposal. If passed the new ordinance would have made it even more difficult for Uber to legally operate in Miami-Dade County by requiring each driver to be registered and carry 24-hour commercial insurance. All the while taxi litigation cases continue to fight against Uber and sue for lost wages.
