    Uber is laying down the law in China. The ride-hailing service has ordered its drivers in China not to participate in taxi protests in the city of Hangzhou, located in Eastern China.

    According to The Wall Street Journal, Uber has threatened to cancel its contracts with those who disobey its commands. The company reportedly said in messages to its drivers that it will use GPS coordinates to determine if drivers are attending the protests, which have been sparked by the rise of illegal competition for taxi drivers. Uber's harsh stance, the company says, is designed to "maintain social order."

    Wow! It's just come to me. China is probably the best country for Travis to set up in. Their record of human rights abuses would even impress him!

    If anything disappointed. What's more annoying is the bison's misplaced admiration for those who desert their team. Maybe that's how he earned part of his screen name 'desert driver".

    I treated D.G./D.D. in a
    Businesslike manner on both Platforms. Prior to July
