Uber losing their licence in London for security reasons – the final dereliction of duty applies up to 14 000 a ride

the ride service Uber to lose their licence in London already for the second time in just over two years. The reason for the authorisation loss are deficiencies in safety, told the news agency.

uber's systems has made the change, which will allow unauthorized drivers are able to download the picture of other drivers accounts. Thus, they are able to take a ride in uber's customers. Abuse applies to at least 14 000 a ride.

the big city responsible for transport Transport for London has told me that they had detected a lift service in operation for several violations, who have "set their passengers and their safety in danger". Therefore, the authority is no longer a new ride service licence.

the Uber decision was "extraordinary and false" and plans to appeal the decision. Uber's South - and East-European director of Jamie Heywood has told, that the company has already during the autumn, invested in, for example, the drivers ' identity to ensure.

a ride service can continue to operate most likely months to the appeal process. Uber is in London, about 45 000 driver.

Uber and Transport for London have been feuding for a long time. Transport for London have not been pleased with uber's operations, and for example, in September it will continue to ride the service licence for only two months.

Uber, in turn, has already promised to increase their drivers safety training and plans for a new "discrimination button", which allows drivers and customers to report they faced discrimination.
