I dont disagree at all. The taxi companies should have implemented technology years ago.. it aint that hard to do. Hopefully this will force them to do so... but I would rather have the strict regulations plus tech, than another wild west system that will end in some sort of tragedy.Uber's data is all in their system, because it has to be -- Uber functions entirely digitally. Not only that, but it's also on your phone, the driver's phone, your bank statement, and a million other places.
Taxi companies here are still stuck in the 20th century technologically and can't even keep track of their calls, much less who went where, when.
Rather not have a driver that was a criminal.. and with a taxi company I have a very good chance of not getting one... on Uber.. well I fear the worst.I think it'd be faster to catch a murderous Uber driver than a murderous cabbie. The information is much more organized, redundant, and persistent.
