Posted on January 28, 2015
Operating illegally in Broward County is getting expensive for the popular ride-hailing app Uber. So far, the county has cited Uber's drivers 250 times and collected $35,000 in fines, records show.

The company, valued at $42 billion, has vowed to pay any fines levied against its drivers, as Uber wrangles with Broward County government to modernize taxi laws.
