Uber needs to be exposed for the organized crime connections, especially those in the “hospitality industry,” the money laundering abilities of the application, and the fostering of anarchy. If taxis need to be regulated then so do the criminals that work for and with Uber. No lies people, it isn’t cheaper.

apply for owner license from municipality $25-200 depending on town
hack license for driver only $15-350 depending on town
insurance whether it be 100k 300k or 1.5 million liability makes the average taxi/livery vehicle insurance premium cost $4200-7600 PER VEHICLE depending on the liability requirements mandated by town.

lastly daily operating costs-repairs,fuel,radio lease/dispatch

so if you can see why cab owners are a little angry thats why!!
