As a result of being recognized by the government as a “pirate” transport service, police will continue arresting UBER drivers.
MERIDA — Yucatan State Transport Director Humberto Hevia Jiménez declared that Uber is a “pirate” service in Merida.
As the multinational platform works outside the law, the works of detection, detention and confiscation of vehicles will continue, he added.
“For the state, the Uber case is already closed,” the official said in an interview with the Diario de Yucatan. “We work according to the law and its regulations to have an orderly, supervised transport service that gives security to both operators and users.”
He was asked if Uber has ever approached the Transportation Directorate to regularize its service, but he said that it is a closed case with the Supreme Court ruling, despite the fact that Uber is still working.
“Well, that’s where we have to urge citizens not to use a system that is not under concession because it endangers the physical integrity of themselves and their families,” he said.
If they are breaking the law, how are you going to dismantle this huge network? he was asked.
“It’s not a matter of dismantling,” he said. “It is a matter of a daily work that we realize to detect vehicles that give a service of transport without the corresponding concession. It is where we are going to act according to the law. “
Hevia Jimenez reported that the Transportation Directorate does not know how many Uber vehicles operate in Merida “because it is an illegal service”.
And if it is a “pirate service”, how are they going to fight against it?
“Through our checkpoints,” he said. “We will continue to stop and retain the vehicles. It is our role, it is part of our obligations and of what we are doing today. “
Since the passage of the Transportation Act reform, he said, they have stopped more than 780 vehicles working for Uber. They returned about 200, but there are repeat offenders.
In Quintana Roo the conventional taxi drivers warned that they will remove Uber from the entity.
