Uber Banned in Vegas

Hookers are welcome in Vegas, but not Uber. Taxi oligarchs are starting to show their political muscle.

A Nevada judge has ordered Uber to stop doing business Las Vegas— and the rest of the state.

Uber, rather than keep taking rides while appealing the Washoe County District Court judge’s ruling, stopped operations Nevada in the city.

“On the eve of Thanksgiving — when Nevadans should be celebrating with family, many are now worried about how they’re going to pay their bills,” Uber said, referring to its 1,000 drivers in the state.

Uber said it will fight the ban and has already collected more than 18,000 signatures on a petition to demand its re-entry into the state.

The Nevada ruling comes 48 hours after Uber — and rival Lyft — were banned from picking up passengers at the Louisville (Ky.) Airport.

The company is also facing a possible ban in France.

  1. There is also an sudden increase in anti-Uber propaganda. According to this propaganda, many or most Uber drivers are felons.
