NEW YORK -- Following the disclosure that over 57 million Uber driver and rider accounts were hacked, exposing sensitive, personal information, the National Limousine Association (NLA) is calling for Uber to halt its operations and on Congress to formally investigate the incident.

While the scope of the breach is still not fully known, the NLA warns the public this information most likely goes well beyond typical credit card exposure seen in many retail hacks.

    They should also use broward county fl as an example. Broward county officials told uber and lyft they could operate as long as they would do a full backround check on their drivers... they both said no and left broward only to send in money guys to change the laws in broward county.
