The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Uber is a valuable asset to any community! Uber has made public transportation safe, convenient, and affordable. Uber has taken public transportation into the 21st century. I can see why it is hard for politicians to realize this because it is hard for them to understand the iPhone and electric vehicles. I have taken only a couple of taxis while living in south Florida and that is because of my experiences with them. All of the drivers are foreign and do not understand traffic laws. I have almost been involved in two accidents while traveling on the highway due to the poor decisions of the taxi drivers, all while being overcharged for their services. I have used uber over 10 times and have been very satisfied with my experiences. Please keep uber in my community. Thank you.
