<h2>What is Uber?</h2>
<p>Uber is a service that provides private drivers for application users. The professionals are accredited with the company and follow minimum requirements for service. In other countries, the modalities are more comprehensive, such as door-to-door food delivery and luxury car service. Some vehicles have free water, air conditioning, among others differentials that increase up to 25% the value of a simpler trip by the application itself. The value of a Uber race can be up to 10% cheaper than a local taxi service. Uber's profit comes from 20% commission earned on each trip and 10% over software that is licensed for the driver to connect with the user. The company's operations began in Brazil in May 2014, and since then have been very annoying to the taxi driver category. The company sells the service in the form of paid hitchhiking, that is, has no relationship with the Associations and Cooperatives of Taxi (Abracomtaxi).</p>

Uber in the sights of Brazilian taxi drivers

At the beginning of April, a demonstration held in So Paulo gathered around 5,000 taxi drivers who protested against the operation of the service in the country. In a note issued to the press at the time, Uber in Brazil commented on the fact:

"Brazilians must have secured their right of choice to move around the cities. Uber points out that not a taxi company, much less provides this type of service, but a technology company that created a technology platform that connects drivers drivers. users who are looking for safe and efficient travel. "

Taxi drivers claim that all practices for the transport of passengers individually with some kind of remuneration are under their protection, having this right regulated by the urban mobility law 12,468. The law established in 2011 dictates all the rules that must be followed for companies to operate in this modality. Even though Uber is a private hitchhiking service, the procedure performed by the company would conflict with the interests of taxi drivers, who eventually lost customers to the app in some cities.

The category complains about the lack of supervision and the clandestine practice of transport performed by Uber. The category asks the Federal Public Ministry to intensify daily actions and increase the fine for each vehicle of the seized service until the application is inactivated in the country. Since the beginning of its operations in Brazil, Uber has had 17 vehicles seized by the MPF on suspicion of irregular transport.
