ISSUES: Uber Fans Save App in Palm Beach & Broward

The popular ride-sharing app, Uber, has fought to stay in both Broward and Palm Beach counties — recently going toe-to-toe with county commissioners over threats of tougher regulations that align them with traditional taxis. In the end, both county commissions stood down from these threats – a main reason was due to a tremendous backlash from Uber users, demanding to keep this beloved service in their areas. Miami-Dade County is next to face-off with Uber. The county has also made it clear that new regulations are needed to keep the service in town, but will commissioners stand strong against them, or listen to the public and back down?
