The Internet has finally come to Dallas. This is the one time it’s good to be in a red state, though it is a blue city. Uber is here and getting a nasty reception from the Dallas City Council and local gendarmes. The Dallas City Council wants to kick them (and Lyft, which is coming soon) out.
Now the local taxi companies have a point. Uber is violating the law and clings to silly semantics to get by where they can. Of course we’re lucky the regulations support motorized carriages. You might as well forget about anything having to do with the Net.
The right solution is promoting competition, accommodating new ways of doing business, and allowing businesses to better serve the public. The government should be promoting the welfare of its citizens, not sheltering legacy businesses.
Please join me and sign the petition to say No to the Anti-Uber proposal.
