It is getting intense in France.
TechCrunch about taxi drivers getting violent against Uber drivers and their cars:
The police have already arrested a taxi driver and an Uber driver. The cabbie was throwing projectiles toward the police, while the latter was attacking a cabbie. It is currently very difficult to go to Charles-De-Gaulle and Orly airports as taxi drivers are blocking the roads. Taxis are also controlling many parts of Paris, looking for Uber drivers. (..)
But for now, Cazeneuve only talked to taxi drivers, saying that UberPOP is now illegal (again), and that he would ask for a justice court order confirming this decision. Uber France director Thibaud Simphal said to BFM TV that as long as a justice court didn’t order Uber to stop UberPOP, the service would continue.
So it’s going to take a while, but the Government is clearly backing taxi drivers after a very violent day — 70 cars were damaged and 10 people were arrested by the police.
