Re: Worried about their safety !!!!!
And the laws typically require that drivers and taxi companies be licensed, have the required insurance etc. And as far as I know fares are also regulated in most cities. How is it fair that taxis have to abide by all the rules, pay all the fees, be restricted in what they can charge yet uber can do as they please and charge what they want?
If uber had to follow all the same rules then their business pretty much falls apart, if cabs were released from all the overhead and restrictions then again the uber business suffers. Basically uber can only succeed because of unfair advantages.
