In some respects, the question of #Uber running in St. Louis always turns into a philosophical debate. While it appears the entire matter boils down to three main points (drug testing, fingerprint background checks and insurance) there has not even been agreement on why these are issues. All three of these - as easily overcome by Uber as they have been for every cab company, limo service, paid shuttle service and other vehicle for hire - are called "onerous". (Seriously, why in the world would you be against drug testing? Such an unnecessary debate.) There are taxicab commissioners being called protectionist of their industry, and other commissioners saying things like, "I'm not going to vote for anything that Uber won't apply for".... Sounds like debate on the actual issues isn’t even, well… open to debate.
Whatever happens today, contrary to what’s widely reported, the situation here is not an embarrassment. Yes, other cities are watching. They’re watching to see how far an Uber can push a city that DOES have a strong regulatory framework. They want to know how far a TNC can run with the “anti-tech” argument in a city where cabs could be hailed by app before Uber existed. They want to see how many of the TNC "demands" or "legislative principles" are met before Uber graciously agrees to begin siphoning money directly out of the local economy.
No, trying to enforce the most basic rules – the safety rules – is nothing to be embarrassed about. Giving them up unnecessarily, however, just might be. ... See MoreSee Less
