Uber to Shut DownUber to Shut Down

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has assured that low-cost car service UberPop will be closed, DW reported. A violent taxi drivers’ protest drew strong criticism from the French government, but the cabbies are also getting their wish. Bernard Cazeneuve, who met with representatives of taxi drivers’ unions on Friday, said he would meet UberPop officials and tell them that their service is “illegal”. “It must, therefore, be closed,” Cazeneuve said. “The government will never accept the law of the jungle.” In the mean time, Cazeneuve said, “the vehicles of UberPOP drivers should be systematically impounded when they are openly breaking the law.”
