Earlier this week, Uber was sued by the city of Portland, Oregon, for allegedly violating local laws, while Rio de Janeiro declared the service illegal and the Netherlands halted ride-sharing service UberPop. In addition, New Delhi banned Uber this week after one of the service’s drivers was accused of raping a passenger.
Drivers are bad enough as it is. Working a summer job at a cab company, I know how frantic it is to get fares. Letting people run around unregulated is probably not the best idea.
