Have you considered Uber too handy? Consider no more: eurocrats come to the rescue

Plenary session week 22 in Brussels.

Uber drivers are no longer allowed to accept orders for rides on their smartphone. This was decided by the Brussels government, according to the Belgian newspaper La Libre Belgique on Monday. Drivers who break the rules will receive a warning at an initial check but risk a fine afterwards. The car can also be confiscated.

Belgian rules stipulate that drivers-driven car renters, which Uber actually does, are not allowed to work with orders via geolocation on a smartphone. In addition, an agreement between driver and passenger must be concluded at least three hours in advance.

An Uber representative in Belgium says that the regulations are still being examined by the Constitutional Court. It is therefore “incomprehensible” that measures are taken against two thousand drivers, says Uber.
