Proposed legislation for regulating ride-sharing service Uber in Uruguay could lead to drivers not meeting the rules having their driving licenses confiscated for up to two years and facing heavy fines, according to local daily El País.
The proposed regulations are due to be debated in congress. The legislation aims to apply similar requirements for Uber drivers as those working in traditional forms of public and private transportation.
The congressional science and technology committee has been studying how to deal with the controversial Uber issue since April.
Last November saw Uber launch its service in Uruguay and it has caused similar levels of opposition from traditional taxi drivers as in many other countries around the world.
