"Absolutely," Brandet said. "Not only is it illegal to offer this service, but it's a real danger for consumers."
Besides we still owe the taxi drivers for ferrying soldiers out to meet the Hun in 1914;
Gen. Joseph Gallieni, the military governor of Paris who concocted
the plan, ordered the taxis to gather on a grassy esplanade in front of
the gold-domed Invalides military museum, which honors war victims and
is the burial site of Napoleon Bonaparte. The commute to battle through
the Paris environs must have been quite a sight: A rumbling caravan of
hand-cranked red cars with bright yellow spokes packed a half-dozen
soldiers behind primly-dressed drivers.

France intends to keep technological innovation to a minimum.
