France's clumsy attempt at preventing consumers (riders) from getting what they want

From Techcrunch: "urban transportation services like Uber and LeCab will now have to wait 15 minutes in France before letting a customer in the car."

Techcrunch also clumsily attempts to provide justification for why but instead perversely confuses cause and effect: "In France, you have to pay a hefty price to get your taxi license. As a payback, the taxi industry is very regulated in this country, and drivers can expect to get a healthy influx of clients." The French have no one to blame but themselves for their economic misery.
