Uber Drivers Protest Uber – John Han's Video

I didn't take in the Uber Drivers Uber Protest but John Han did and he was kind enough to let me pass along his two videos. The first runs around sixteen minutes and the second is an edited version of the first concentrating on insurance fraud.

Other insites in the video are the facts that: Uber has 16,000 vehicles in San Francisco alone, cuts in driver's incomes has caused some drivers to work as much as 100 hours a week thus endangering the public, Uber steals parts of their drivers tips, and Uber drivers are aware that they are not insured.

Why are Uber drivers protesting Uber? Drivers reveal Uber's terrible ethics by John Han  


  1. i posted some of the schaller study stuff a while back but i would like to draw attention to it again, i think within it lie some of the best arguments for why the taxi industry should remain regulated, as opposed to the effective deregulation that we are now experiencing. i encourage people to study it, this is hard researched data, scientific studies, not he said she said, here it is:

    this is my favorite:

    drivers for hire are safer when they can reasonably expect to pay their bills, be they taxi, uber or lyft. meter rates, gates and the number of cabs on the street affect this. this is the key reason why flooding the streets with faux taxis will never be safe. public safety or living wage issue, they are inseparable, this is what the data says.

  2. speaking of uber, have a look at gawker. uber is now a car hustler. excellent article.


    so the sfmta is making stricter insurance requirements at this time you have got to be kidding me

  4. I can't say that I agree with the way these ubers were protesting, but there is more to this story than the media is often telling you.
