A Taxi Driver Set A Trap For An UberX So He Could Get The Car Seized

Then he got chewed out by the Montreal taxi bureau.

Montreal taxi driver Hassan Kattoua called for an UberX. He asked it to pick him up at the headquarters of the Montreal taxi bureau.

A camera crew from Radio-Canada arrived and filmed the scene as it unfolded. Kattoua told Radio-Canada he wanted to see what taxi inspectors would do, and help them in their efforts to keep UberX off the streets.

This is the latest in an ongoing battle between the UberX service and the Montreal taxi bureau and city.

The mayor and the provincial government have said UberX, which enables those without a taxi license to become a driver, is illegal. Local police have already seized well over 40 UberX vehicles and given fines.
