They're undercutting taxis by avoiding all the rules that cover taxis, putting passengers at more risk. It's disruptive, but in all the wrong ways.

This is a very common claim but in the market with which I am familiar (London, England) it is wholly untrue.

In London, Uber is required to adhere to the same standards as any other private hire taxi firm, and has been since it started operating in London. It is just a taxi firm like any other. The rules apply to all taxi firms and drivers; it, and its drivers, cannot avoid any rules.

(I should add that minicabs in London are required to adhere to essentially the same standards as black cabs nowadays and both are regulated by the same organisation).

If it appears that Uber is "avoiding all the rules" in other markets then it might be helpful to look at the rules as set out by local legislature. What exactly are the rules? Is Uber really breaking the law in your jurisdiction, somehow? And if you feel that the local laws are not tight enough then perhaps campaign for change in the law.
