I LOVE Uber. I love being a driver and a passenger. Uber has not only given me the ability to gain addtional income during my rough patch but it also gives me an affordable and safe way to ride back and forth to places when I cannot drive. Uber is the BEST thing created since sliced bread. I've done over 500 rides and 100%, I literally mean every single one of my passengers never have one bad thing to say about Uber. The ONLY people complaining are Taxi and Cab companies but America and the whole world are built on innovation and competition. It would be really horrible if South Florida could not update their laws and regulations to incorporate forward thinking industries such as TNC. I would probably even be compelled to move out of the state of Florida because of this. I love change and progress and not allowing Uber and other ride sharing platforms to operate here would be a travesty
