District taxi drivers on Monday urged city administrators to create strict regulations for sedan drivers, including those working for popular town car service Uber, the Washington Examiner reported. Drivers and taxi company owners told the D.C. Taxicab Commission that they fear Uber will put them out of business if the city doesn't impose fare regulations like it does on cabs.
"If the city allows sedans, that will depress the market for taxis," cab driver Negede Abebe told commissioners, saying that Uber fares should be five to seven times more expensive than taxis. "[Sedans] will make it difficult for an independent taxi driver to survive."
