uberBusinessLive reports that the ongoing rivalry between Johannesburg metered taxi drivers and Uber operators appears set for court.  Each party laid criminal charges against the other at the Pretoria Central Police Station.  

This followed another clash that resulted in one Uber vehicle being damaged near the Hatfield Gautrain station on Tuesday night.  A police spokesperson said a group of Uber operators had opened a case of attempted murder and malicious damage to property, while the metered taxi drivers laid a case of intimidation.  Nobody has been arrested.  Tuesday’s incident comes a few days after three cars were torched in Sandton.  Several drivers from both sides were injured as they fought over who should provide transport services.  The incidents have led to increased police visibility in the affected areas.
