70, and west of Indiana Street as extended from its intersection with I-70, thence south on

Indiana Street as extended to its intersection with the Jefferson and Douglas County boundary

lines.

         The Commission granted the temporary authority in part by Decision No. C05-0369 on

April 1, 2005.

         Ordering Paragraph 3 of Decision No. C05-0369 states “Designated Driver shall not

commence operation until it has caused proof of insurance or surety bond coverage to be filed

with the Commission in accordance with applicable rules.” Ordering Paragraph 4 states “If

Designated Driver does not comply with the requirements of this Order within 30 days of its

effective date, then the temporary authority shall be void. For good cause shown, the Commission

may grant additional time for compliance if the request for additional time is filed within the 30

days.” The 30-day period to comply with the filing requirements of Decision No. C05-0369

expired on May 1, 2005.

         Designated Driver did not file the required liability insurance by May 1, 2005.

Designated Driver did file its request for additional time on April 29, 2005 or within the 30-day

period allowed by Decision No. C05-0369.

         In her letter, Lisa O’Farrell the owner of Designated Driver states “This letter is to

formally request that a 30-day extension be granted to Designated Driver in order for us to be

able to successfully meet the filing requirements as defined by the subject Decision No. and order

granting Designated Driver temporary authority to operate. We are only waiting on commercial

insurance. Our application is pending and we expect completion very shortly.”
