PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - A taxi company owner is threatening to pull his eight cabs out of Portsmouth on New Year’s Eve because of the city’s alleged lack of enforcement against ride-sharing service Uber.

Great Bay Taxi owner John Palreiro tells The Portsmouth Herald (http://bit.ly/1Pa36w1 ) that other cabbies are also considering his plan to work in Dover instead of Portsmouth on Dec. 31.

Palreiro penned a letter to city officials claiming that unregistered Uber drivers have cost his business approximately $100,000.

The letter also states that Palreiro will move operations to Dover for New Year’s Eve if a temporary injunction against Uber isn’t granted.

Transportation Services Committee Chairman Peter Bresciano recommended Wednesday that Portsmouth City Council seeks a court order to force Uber from operating within city limits.
