Taxi Drivers Worldwide Protest Ride-Sharing Businesses

Taxi drivers around the globe have staged protests recently against ride-sharing businesses like Uber and Lyft, which they say steal their business and operate illegally, NBC News reported. Ride-sharing apps let people who need a ride connect with drivers looking to make some money off their car. Credit cards are already linked to a user's account, so no cash or card is necessary. Taxi drivers say it's unfair that volunteer drivers don't have to follow rules and regulations, while ride-sharing supporters contend that old regulations are stifling innovation and competition.
