tires burn and roads are blocked as French taxi drivers protest Uber in Paris



Paris officials announced a ban on UberPop after about 2,800 taxi drivers staged a strike across France today in protest of the ride-hailing app.

 The taxi drivers briefly blocking access to airports and forced passengers to finish the journey by foot.

Prices are generally 30 to 50 percent cheaper than cab fares and drivers pay far less taxes. The service was already deemed illegal by the French government that accuses it of unfair competition.
