As much as I’m a fan of Uber, there’s no denying that at times the methods they use to enter new markets are questionable at best. To some degree I don’t really think they can be blamed. The taxi mafias are corrupt as could be, and clearly there are some shady dealings between them and the relevant regulatory authorities.
So by using questionable methods to enter markets and then being shut down, Uber is at least starting the conversation and forcing themselves to be heard in court.
Regardless of how you feel about Uber, though, I think this guy deserves an award for being the world’s biggest douchewaffle, as he has performed citizen’s arrests on eight UberX drivers in Sydney:
I totally get if you have a problem with the way Uber operates in markets, but to take it out on individual drivers like this? Seriously?
