Posted on February 25, 2014

Police at Los Angeles International Airport have begun to enforce little known rules that make it slightly more difficult for two of the most popular ride-sharing services — UberBlack and UberSUV — to pick up passengers at terminals.

    Here in Boston, there aren't enough Hackney division officers to stop the growing tide of Uber drivers who are literally stealing from the cab drivers and chauffeurs. Between the hours of 10AM and 3PM, when Uber is slow you can find any number of their drivers actively soliciting at the trains stations and at Logan Airport. They do it blatantly and when you ask them if they know there's a five hundred dollar fine for soliciting if they get caught, they just laugh in your face. Sure, Uber ay be great for the customers, but essentially what they have done is given a bunch of thieves licenses to steal all over town. Add to that probably one of the most uncaring group of management, the majority of whom have NEVER worked in the livery business before. I mean, the GM of the Uber NYC office spent his entire career in RETAIL!. Go to their job openings and they're only looking for young tech types that are proficient in social media, never mind experience in the real world. All it would take is one of the bigger companies to try and emulate the Uber formula and I guarantee people would leave Uber in droves.
