UBER is no stranger to controversy and protests. From New York and London to South Korea, furious taxi drivers have come out in protest against the mobile car-booking app. Germany took Uber to court and South Korea announced a ban, yet the Uber app seems to be gaining popularity among the people. It is currently available in 222 cities in 45 countries.
SPAD had been trying to get hold of someone from Uber since May for discussions but was unsuccessful until it was announced that the authorities were going to act against drivers using the Uber apps. A meeting between them was held recently.
