Uber cabs may face restrictions amid controversy

The recent controversy over Uber regulations in New York City has put its drivers under a microscope.



The city recently agreed to forgo a cap or restriction on the number of Uber cars on the road. However, officials say that a four-month study will be conducted to determine Uber's effect on traffic and pollution, which may possibly result in a cap.



Ibrahim Sani, one of the nearly 7,000 Uber drivers in Brooklyn, tells News 12 that he is grateful for the freedom the company provides to its employees.



Sani says he expects Uber's popularity to increase, especially to people in the profession. He claims that the company is superior to other yellow cab companies because it offers more hours and compensation.



Fernado Mateo, the president of New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, says that it's only a matter of time before the company's growth halts.
