    Mr. 305mialimo I don't understand why are you on a limousine association Website talking all of this S***T when you could be out there ubering with your friends. I don't mean to disrespect or anything but I don't get it just go work for uber and leave the rest of the people alone. The reason you like uber so much because you can't make it on your own that's why it has nothing to do with other limo company's if they are corrupted or not, look at uber they are bribing anyway they can bribe and that's why they are where they are not because they are doing something good.
