It should have been done in over 10,000 cases.

"TfL has found a pattern of errors in the company including multiple rule violation, which has exposed the passengers' safety at risk."

"In spite of the fact that some Betlike of the problems are addressed, has TfL not trust that similar problems will not occur in the future. It has led us to the conclusion that the company is not suitable to have a licence," writes the TfL according to Reuters.

Uber has already announced that the company will appeal the decision. During the appeal can Uber continue to operate.

"Over the last two months we have reviewed all of the drivers in London. We have a robust system in place to ensure all drivers identity," says Ubers responsible for North and Western europe, Jamie Heywood, according to AFP.
