Delinquent Grandma Gets Popped for 2nd Uber Offense
Portsmouth's oldest rebel-rouser continues to give the city the middle finger after getting cited for her second Uber offense in less than a month.
According to an article on SeacoastOnline.com, Stephanie Franz, 62, was cited late Saturday night and faces a fine of up to $1,500.
Mrs. Franz was cited for her first offense on October 17th and became an instant rallying cry for the #FreeUber movement.
Everything was fine with Uber until Portsmouth passed an ordinance requiring specific insurance and background checks, even though these were already covered by the ride-sharing service. This means that Uber cannot legally operate in the City of Portsmouth until the matter gets resolved.
Uber proposed changes to the transportation law but the vote was delayed by the City Council on Monday night.
The struggle continues!
