“We've been operating for 50 or 60 years under the taxicab ordinances of Oklahoma City, and it's very simple — they're in violation,” Andrews said.
“If we start operating like they do next week, does that mean that we won't have to get permits and licenses anymore? We don't have to have our drivers drug-tested and do background checks and check their driving records and things like that? We want a level playing field, OK? And right now it's not even close.”
Andrews said police officers should start issuing tickets.
Joey Allen, the Oklahoma City general manager of a limousine service called Kings Worldwide Transportation, said he also thinks Uber drivers are violating city ordinances and should be ticketed.
