Another Uber attempt

Last night, I was driving back from the airport after dropping off dogs, and the road to Playa Animal Rescue was completely block by cabs. This morning this story was in the Por Esto. It's a goggle translate, so not the best.

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, SOLIDARITY, 18 November.- Uber Chase ends in a serious accident, although no one was injured, a family of tourists got the shock of their lives took. The ruleteros detected a suspicious passage unit up at the Paradisus hotel, ask for his identification papers and tried to flee at full speed by the Painters Avenue. Taxi drivers you blocked the way for curb and instead of stopping, the driver went in the opposite direction until another worker steering wheel pierced his unit, generating the brutal impact.
The incident occurred around 17:30 pm on Friday, when a group of taxi drivers who do based on the Paradisus hotel located on Fifth Avenue between Calle 88 and 100 noticed that a particular vehicle entered collect passage, so they asked him to identify himself , however operator, far from stopping, hit the gas at the bottom trying to escape the workers of the steering wheel.
was it a vehicle of the Renault type Fluence gray, license plates, UTT-776-C, which had allegedly collected passage and headed toward the boulevard Playa del Carmen fleeing the taxi drivers who had discovered. Arriving at the height of 30th Avenue blocked her way, so she got into the lane opposite direction until a few meters to reach the federal, another ruletero he tried to close the passage, colliding both resoundingly units.
The occupants of the unit did not want to lose, while ruleteros surrounding the unit, was until authorities arrived when a family traveling apparently as passengers descended from the unit to leave the place with an acquaintance who came to his aid. Several minors embraced as a sign of having frightened when they arrived the municipal authorities.
The other unit involved was a station wagon Dodge white labeled by the Union of Taxi Drivers Lazaro Cardenas del Rio, Division of Specialized Services in Tourism marked with economic number e-152 and license plates 3849-TRV.
in the place a lot of ruleteros met, also arrived municipal preventive police, elements of the traffic municipal, experts and inspectors of Sintra.
the two drivers were transferred direct to the public ministry, while units were moved to a city impound for the legal consequences arising them.

Hahahaha!
Is it legal?!

Actually, the Uber drivers are illegal.
It's against the law to provide services with a private plated vehicle.
Uber is for Uber. Not their individual drivers.
