France Cracks Down On Uber After Protests

ProTip: When the interior minister says your service is illegal and people are flipping cars and setting them on fire, now might not be a good time to "insist" that your company will continue services in that country.

France's interior minister has ordered a ban on the low-cost car-sharing service UberPOP after a day of nationwide protests by taxi drivers. Bernard Cazeneuve said the service was "illegal" and ordered police and prosecutors to enforce its closure.
