Toronto Police Carry Out Undercover Sting Operation On Uber Drivers

Toronto Police have executed a crackdown on UberX drivers, the latest escalation in a series of confrontations between city authorities and the U.S.-based ride-sharing company.

At least 11 alleged UberX drivers are facing a total of at least 22 charges after a week-long undercover sting on unlicensed taxicabs earlier this month. The crackdown comes as cities around the world struggle to regulate the new, controversial service, and amidst a legal battle between the City of Toronto and the app-based ride-sharing company.

Well I feel safer. So do the fat-cats who own TO’s Cab licenses I bet.

    Cops are the new tax collectors. Catching criminals doesn’t pay.
