Taxi drivers protest unfair advantage given to Uber cars at SFO

Hundreds of San Francisco taxi drivers held a demonstration at San Francisco airport last week to protest the airport’s allowing Uber, Lyft and other smart-phone-summoned ride services to pick up passengers at the airport, even though they are not required to follow the rules and shoulder the costs of city-licensed taxis.
The issue is deeper than just the airport pick-ups. Tom Herriman reports from San Francisco.
