CANCUN – Officials of Cancun and nearby cities have arrested dozens of Uber drivers and taken their cars to the impound lot until drivers pay fines of about $ 2,800 USD each.
The state government of Quintana Roo says the ride-sharing service is offering illegal transport services.
Uber says that fines are exorbitant and has alleged “threats and violence against drivers, customers and tourists.”
Transportation Secretary Jorge Portilla says Uber violated a state law banning unlicensed transport services, and Uber knew about the law beforehand.
Portilla says Uber has affected the income of licensed taxi drivers.
