Given all the news stories about Uber drivers raping women I would NEVER use Uber! You say your friends have used Uber but my question is have YOU ever used Uber or a cab?

I live in NOLA and travel extensively. In some cities and countries there are laws about cab stands. For example you can't hail a cab within X feet of a stand to be fair to the drivers who have been waiting. The stands are strategically placed in high traffic areas with easy ins and outs for the drivers. There are also fare rates when the distance isn't enough to make the driver money. I feel like these laws would benefit NOLA drivers especially when a tired drunk fare just needs to go a few blocks. It's worth $20 to him but with the current fares it's not worth your time. Is your organization looking at rules like this? Also, what is the city doing to make cab stands easier to find? It's hard to locate them and I live here. Imagine a drunk tourist.
