What does the word ''stands to'' mean in this context? But, as ride-hailing industry officials argue, the problem with such seemingly equal treatment is that many Uber and Lyft drivers are part-timers or moonlighters who use their personal cars a few hours a week to earn a few extra dollars. Imposing extra demands and costs on them stands to dry up the supply of drivers, reduce the availability of rides and cripple the business without necessarily providing any additional benefit to consumers.Daniel Parks, zuotengdazuo - thanks for your help!
