So on Friday, 1 April cops at Tampa International find a woman passed out in her car that she wasn't supposed to be driving because of her licensed being pulled for drugs or something like that. She claimed she was an Uber Driver waiting on a flight.
Enter HCPTC Comish Victor Crist holding this sad sack woman up as an example of why Uber needs to be regulated blah, blah, blah with no confirmation by Uber if she in fact was their driver before opening his lying mouth. Never mind he opposed state regulation of the whole limo industry including TNCs.
Well hell, individuals including my self questioned if she was Uber. Got to love comment sections on news stories. Gives those with integrity a chance to be heard.
When Uber got wind of this they set the record straight and the following report update was aired: http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/seen-...-tia/116639864
