#UBER Uber France annonce la suspension du service UberPop à partir de ce soir.

Here’s Uber’s statement
In the light of last week’s violence, we have today decided to suspend uberPOP, our ride sharing service, until September’s Constitutional Court decision. It’s a tremendously sad day for our 500 000 French uberPOP passengers, as well as the drivers who used the platform. However, safety must come first. Our regular UberX service, which uses licensed cars and makes up a majority of our trips each day in France, will continue to operate as usual…
It is heartbreaking to see the violence in the streets when we know that taxi drivers can earn more on the Uber platform…
