New car services

Having endured Miami's dismal cab service for years, complete with cab drivers who did not speak English or Spanish, did not know the city, refused the airport to Coral Gables ride, did not want to turn their A/C on and had cleaned their cab in 1950 for the last time, I welcome UberX and Lyft and all of those services.

If it had not been for the threat of competition, cab services would not even accept credit cards and, as it is, it will take one or two years to accomplish what most of us can accomplish in 15 minutes by using Square. Do the police have nothing better to do than prosecute Lyft and UberX drivers?
