Only a handful of taxi drivers charged for Uber attacks

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Seven taxi drivers have been charged for attacks against Uber drivers mostly in Cancun. On Monday, the Attorney General of Quintana Roo, Raciel López, reported on the updated figures.

During a press conference, López explained that authorities continue to carry out surveillance tours to deter altercations between taxi drivers and those of digital platforms.

“We are not going to sit idly by. We are going to be on top of it, on top of those who are violating the human rights of third parties especially when they are visitors.

“Taxi drivers should not interfere with the right of others to work. We are going all out against them,” he added.

In late July, two Cancun taxi drivers were videoed assaulting an Uber vehicle transporting passengers. Both drivers were arrested and ordered to remain jailed on charges of robbery, damages and injures.
