Toronto Taxi Alliance commends Niagara Region Police for enforcing the law on Uber - as Toronto should be doing

TORONTO, April 8, 2016 /CNW/ - 20 Uber drivers have been charged under the Highway Traffic Act by Niagara Regional Police in a sting operation conducted over several weeks. The Toronto Taxi Alliance commends Niagara Police for its dedication to enforcing the law for the protection of passengers and citizens.

The Toronto Police Service has chosen not to enforce the very same law despite repeated requests that it do so.

Frighteningly, in charging only 20 Uber drivers, Niagara police also found:

  • One of the drivers was not the advertised Uber driver of record
  • One of the drivers was currently charged with a criminal offence
  • One of the vehicles used was not currently registered
  • Three of the drivers were from outside the Niagara Region and did not know the area
