Here is a short video I made regarding a news story I just saw on WSB here in Atlanta.
A little background on this first:
Currently it is legal for Uber/Lyft to drop off at the airport, but NOT for pickups…even though it happens all the time.
Atlanta City council is trying to decide on the rules to make pickups legal.
Taxi drivers want Uber/Lyft drivers to get a fingerprint background check (Like they claim they have to) to make pickups. Uber disagrees. Currently there are only 2 cities that require Uber drivers to do fingerprints, (NY and San Antonio)
For this councilman coming up in the video to say that we need to find a way to make a “Level playing field for taxi drivers” is ridiculous! Let the free market decide who survives and who dies off. That’s the way it’s supposed to work. Enough of big government deciding who wins and who loses. Let the consumers decide. The taxi world is coming to an end because you’re business model is failing. Change with the times, or end with the times. Why do we have to make someone else weaker to make you stronger? #Idiot
