Four Uber drivers were arrested in Amsterdam on Sunday for flouting a ban on unlicensed taxi services. According to local reports, they may be fined up to €4,200 ($5,329) or more if they break the law again. Bloomberg reported Uber as saying the crackdown was “unjustified and disproportional.” One report suggested the firm might pay drivers’ fines in some cases. In Berlin, where Uber has frequently come up against similar laws, the company has now cut its UberPop/UberX fares to such a low point that the services count as ride-sharing rather than profit-making taxi services, thus bypassing taxi licensing regulations – but destroying any incentive for people to drive for it.
