349 allthekos Uber need to be more responsible about drivers criminal records and whether they are suitable to be drivers. I think that is the most worrying thing about their company Where I live in the north, one taxi company has undercut all others and now has a monopoly. Their drivers have been reported numerous times for harassing lone women and other shady behaviour. Uber could be good, but they need to be more safe and more efficient
38 MadeThisForPython Record breaking? WTF news titles are so weird? There are many petitions that have crossed 1 million signatures, why is this 'record-breaking' ?
134 trusty20 I used to be a huge Uber supporter but just as the nay-sayers said it would, it became just like the taxi corporations except that it was one monolithic company. A) Uber costs more than taxis in my area now, and I live in a major Canadian city, and that's not counting surge which can make the price laughably expensive (like $70 for a 10 minute ride) B) Uber drivers frequently take forever to actually get going after accepting a ride; gone is the day of 3-4 minute pickups being common, 10 minutes is the new minimum and as much as 20 minutes. So again, on par or worse than taxis. C) Now they're starting to back away from the "no tips necessary" rule
7 s1ssycuck Much as I dislike Uber I think if I lived in London I'd be pissed too. But then again, it's up to uber to show their business model isn't just based on bending the law.
20 AWES0M-0 Knowing Uber, they probably had a bunch of bots sign that.
7 notabee Uber astroturfs very aggressively. In Austin, TX they hired many people to go around town collecting signatures for a petition against the city's decision for background checks. It was really damn annoying being accosted by hired shills while going into a store just because Uber couldn't stand doing anything that might make its "contractors" legally like employees. Why treat your employees well when you can bulldoze through regulations with false populism?

5 ---Ocelot--- 500K people are angry because a vile company that disregards all laws couldn't get to be a toxic private monopoly. Unbelievable.

3 sidhantsv Reddit is weird. The other thread had hordes of Uber supporters and this thread is mostly anti-Uber.

If Uber has problems let's resolve them not just ban them" wrote one who signed the petition. > "I have every sympathy with Uber drivers and customers affected by this decision but their anger really should be directed at Uber. They have let down their drivers and customers by failing, in the view of TfL, to act as a fit and proper operator," said Mr Khan in response to the petition. ***** [**Extended Summary**]( | [FAQ]( "Version 1.65, ~215321 tl;drs so far.") | [Feedback]( "PM's and comments are monitored, constructive feedback is welcome.") | *Top* *keywords*: **Uber**^#1 **petition**^#2 **London**^#3 **debate**^#4 **Innovation**^#5
6 Runningflame570 Everything I've read about them tells me that Uber is a corrupt enterprise that should be permanently shutdown. Lyft? I'm fine with them, but Uber can burn in hell.

4 simlew86 They're sponsoring the shit out of the adverts to sign the petition. Knee jerk reaction from people who are initially outraged because of losing a convenience. Fuck Uber. They need to sort their own affairs out then there won't be an issue.
