Uber drivers must provide evidence of poor vehicle control and long history of sex-offending say TFL
Transport For London have advised the app-based private hire company, Uber, that if they want their operator’s licence to be restored under review, they must ensure that all their drivers are appallingly ill-equipped to negotiate London’s streets and have a lamentable history of sex offending going back at least 10 years.
A TFL spokesman said last night “Unless Uber can meet the correct criteria their licence will continue to be withheld.
“It is essential that London’s travelling public can travel, safe in the knowledge that they stand a fairly high chance of being sexually harassed or abused during their trip, or at the very least, that they will be taken on a magical mystery tour, ending up in a collision with another vehicle, miles from their destination and with a plastic bottle of the driver’s piss rolling around at their feet.
Uber have already responded positively to the directive by taking on a number of disgraced actors and members of parliament.
