Mobility Institute will “eventually” suspend operations after another Cancun Uber attack

Cancun, Q.R. — Delegate of the Mobility Institute of Benito Juárez, Bibian Castillo Dzul, says they will “eventually” suspend their operations against vehicles that provide transportation service through Uber after a recent attack against a driver and his vehicle.

On Thursday, video of an Uber car being physically attacked began circulating on social media. The event occurred in SM 4 of Cancun around 2:00 p.m. after an Uber driver was targeted by an inspector of the Mobility Institute. While stopped, others suddenly appeared from different vehicles and began assaulting the Uber driver and kicking the car, causing damage.

The aggression was captured on video and shows the moment when three people start attacking the vehicle that was detained in the Mobility Institute operation.

The attacked motorist, who is an Uber partner, has filed a complaint with the State Attorney General’s Office, while the Mobility Institute issued a statement clarifying that they did not participate in the violence, but were external individuals.

The Mobility inspector is said to have called 911. Authorities have not made an official statement regarding the attack.
