"If the vehicle that you plan to use to provide transportation network company services has a lien against it, using the vehicle for transportation network company services may violate the terms of your contract with the lienholder.

(c) If the vehicle used by a transportation network driver is subject to a lien and the lienholder requires comprehensive and collision insurance in its agreement, the transportation network driver shall ensure that comprehensive and collision insurance that covers the periods when the transportation network driver is logged on to a TNC's digital network but not engaged in a prearranged ride and when the transportation network driver is engaged in a prearranged ride is in effect.
(d) This section shall take effect on and after January 1, 2016.
