Uber app has been banned in Berlin

From this morning's Metro paper I learn that Uber has been banned in Berlin on passenger safety grounds, as the drivers provided by Uber are "unvetted, unlicensed" and threatened Uber with a €25,000 fine.

Uber is under threat in many cities around the world including San Francisco and London.

I just mention it so that people considering using the app know of potential problems.

Yes, because now that the Helpline is fragmented and people look in different places for their answers something as important as taxis may be referenced by the country, Transportation, and General.

If the Helpline hadn't been hit by a hand grenade a few months ago there would have been no need.
