Last week, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus issued a stern warning to Uber drivers about driving for the event: “It is illegal, and if you operate as an Uber or Lyft driver or any transportation network company in this city, you run the risk of getting your vehicle impounded and ticketed," he said.
Rock on, Chief McManus.
Uber continues to operate illegally after McManus issued cease-and-desist letters to Uber, Lyft and Sidecar in March. Uber released the following statement in response to McManus’ warning: “Uber has facilitated hundreds of rides in San Antonio by providing access to safe, reliable and inexpensive transportation options.”
That’s rich: “hundreds” of safe rides. We feel safer already!
Nothing like having an illegal transportation company that’s openly resisting law enforcement as your official partner and designated driver for an event called “COCKTAIL.”
