Boris Johnson has claimed that Uber drivers are breaking the law “in lots of minor ways”, to the extent that London’s authorities are unable to keep up.
The Mayor of London said the minicab app’s drivers are consistently violating laws on loitering and plying for hire, as well as being responsible for “aggravating” the level of traffic in the capital.
Boris said this in the article and sat back and did nothing.
TfL knew Boris had said this....and then as regulator, sat back and did nothing.
In a game of smoke and mirrors, TfL held a consultation and announced they were going to introduce 25 tougher regulations.
To this day TfL have done virtually nothing other than relaxed regulations to make it easier for uber to operate.
We've now been informed by the GMB that Ubers relicensing is already a done deal.
