Uber Quits The Hamptons

How will the elite survive? On Friday, Uber halted its services operating in East Hampton, New York. The personal car service failed to find a way to comply with the town’s new mandate that every driver have a physical address in the area, which was put into effect at the end of last year. “In no way were these laws created with Uber in mind,” Supervisor Larry Cantwell said Friday. “We had cabs coming from all over into the town to pick up a quick buck on the weekends and it created a problem in the community, especially in Montauk. At one time, there were over 700 cabs that were licensed to do business in East Hampton. The law is intended to bring order to that situation.”
