People living near London’s Heathrow airport are fed up with the Uber drivers who wait for passengers in their neighborhoods. According to The Guardian, residents have complained about the drivers littering, blocking driveways, and even urinating in gardens. Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye says all this has added up to a “huge amount of distress.”
In response, Uber has geo-blocked the villages around Heathrow so drivers cannot pick up fares there. The airport is planning to build a new waiting area for private taxis, including Uber vehicles.
