Uber’s latest regulatory roadblock happens to be the entire country of Italy. In a court ruling issued April 7, all of Uber’s services were banned in the European country after a Rome judge ruled in favor of Italy’s major taxi associations that the ride-hailing service amounted to unfair competition, according to a report from Reuters. That means Uber’s Black, Lux, Suv, X, XL, Select, and Van services are all blocked from operating in Italy, and Uber cannot advertise at all in the country.

    I now love italy and their officials !!!!!! They could not be influenced by a company that has operated illegally. 2017 -- 3 billion dollar loss Its a bubble company waiting to burst. Other countries will follow. You cant enter a business without following the rules that others have to follow.
