    Uber does seems to be expanding aggressively and in some cases, disregards the local law. Regardless how dated a law may be or how unfair the system may seem to new entrants, breaking the law does not seems like what a responsible company should be doing.

    Well said, in my cases Uber does indeed try to aggressively expand and yes, the law should be adhered to.

    UPDATE:

    Uber faces legal action in US court over India rape allegations

    A woman allegedly raped by an Uber driver in India plans to take legal action against the taxi aggregator in a US court claiming negligence.

    The action will centre on Uber's lax background checks on drivers and the woman has secured the services of well-known New York lawyer Douglas Wigdor.

    Wigdor previously represented hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo, who gained a million dollar settlement from former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn over an alleged sexual assault.

    Wigdor has asked for US jurisdiction in the case as Uber's company policy pertaining to driver conduct was made in the US.
