Ride-share in Austin? You could lose your car

The regulators and the regulated are at it again, the former protecting the latter from competition, instead of, you know, helping the consumer. Ha, ha. Regulation is never about the consumer. That’s just political window dressing.

Try to offer ride-sharing service here in Austin via the Lyft or Uber apps? You could lose your car. Simple as that. No consumer protection here, fella, just competition protection.

As the Instapundit says, when the market rules, the opportunities for graft decline. And the regulators can’t have that. Not even in Texas. No sirree.

  1. Funny. But this is a typical clash between different regulations. Probably will be settled down the road.
