Uber Service In Israel Stopped By Court Injunction

An Israeli court has ordered Uber to stop its ride-sharing operations in Israel less than a month after launching the service in Tel Aviv.
A court blocked Uber's ride- sharing services in Israel on Monday in a victory for the country's traditional taxi operators, saying the U.S. firm's private drivers lacked proper insurance. The Uber defense was apparently insufficient to convince the court that the new company adapted its system to conform with Israeli law and administrative regulations. The drivers are not licensed to drive a taxi.
The ministry previously sued drivers who operate through Uber and sources say it will continue to take legal action against both drivers and passengers who use the application.
Globes reports "At the beginning of November, Uber Israel began operating its UberDAY ridesharing service in Tel Aviv and the neighboring cities of Ramat Gan and Givatayim with journeys undertaken to Herzliya in the north and Bat Yam in the south".
At Monday's hearing, Judge Eitan Orenstein criticized Uber on that initiative, including issues of insurance and pricing, which he said do not reflect a reimbursement of expenses but a real payment.
Since October 2016, Uber Israel had been operating its UberNIGHT service in Greater Tel Aviv. "We're committed to continued cooperation with the authorities, to examine how technology can provide reliable, cost-effective and safe transportation solutions". In mid-January, the Israeli Transportation Ministry's trial against Uber will begin, demanding the immediate cessation of the company's activity in Israel and that a fine be imposed for criminal activity.
