The Battle Intensifies: Police Raid Uber’s Hong Kong Office

Uber drivers, who had allegedly accepted fares from undercover police officers who had set up a sting, were also accused of driving without the required permits and insurance, local media reported.

Uber Hong Kong  issued the following statement:

Uber ensures that all rides are covered by insurance and all drivers on the platform undergo an extensive background check.   
We stand by our driver-partners 100 per cent and welcome the opportunity to work closely with the authorities towards updated regulations that put the safety and interests of riders and drivers first.

On the other hand, Hong Kong police, acting to protect the Hong Kong taxi oligarchy,warned the public not to take rides from unlicensed services.

  1. I live in HK. HK taxi drivers are known to be very rude and unhelpful. Before I took my first UBER ride, I asked my wife to expect a vast difference in customer experience. She was not disappointed.
