AUSTIN LEFTISTS CONTINUE THEIR REVOLT AGAINST THE MASSES. Fallout from Uber ban: “The city of Austin is using sting operations to crack down on drivers working for unlicensed ride-hailing companies, issue fines and seize cars, authorities told the American-Statesman on Tuesday. The cars of four drivers for Arcade City, a peer-to-peer service that connects passengers with drivers through its Facebook page, were impounded Friday after the city’s Transportation Department conducted a sting.”

Additionally, “In the first three week after Uber and Lyft left Austin, DWI arrests were up 7.5 percent over the same time last year.” An Austin bartender tells Vocativ.com, “‘I used to say ‘hey are you taking an Uber or Lyft home?’ now it’s just three drinks and ‘I’m sorry I have to cut you off.’”
