Uber’s future in London is under question for the second time in recent years after the city’s transport regulator deemed it to not be “fit and proper” and stripped the ridesharing company of its licence.
Transport for London (TfL) found that it was easy for drivers to deceive Uber’s registration system. As a result, customers have had over 14,000 trips with unregistered drivers who faked their identity.
It isn’t the first time that Uber has faced legal troubles. The tech giant has spent years in an existential crisis trying to work out -- and convince courtrooms and customers -- exactly what it is.
