In phone video taken by one of the women, the driver says kissing in an Uber is illegal.

The couple filmed the altercation on a mobile phone and posted it on YouTube. She thought he was joking, ' Iovine, an advertising technology consultant, said.

The women say that the driver soon pulled over, opened the doors, and said, "You should not do that".

Iovine presses him to explain, asking: 'Why are we not allowed to kiss in an Uber?' "At one point we leaned over and pecked kiss, very fast", Pichl told The Post Monday. And by tidying up after yourself - whether it's taking your trash home or cleaning up a spilled drink - you'll keep the vehicle in good condition and ensure the next person has a pleasant ride, too.

The driver can be seen in the video telling the couple that what they did was illegal and disrespectful.

The driver's taxi license, required to drive for Uber in New York City, has been suspended as the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission investigates what happened.

Five minutes later, according to Pichl, the driver "pulled the cab over and said 'you should not do that...do not do that'".

The grabbie cabbie reaches for one of the women's phones to stop her from videotaping.

This should be a catalyst for more games. "It does not take away what happened in the World Cup qualifiers and everyone's feelings about the 10-team tournament".

"After we had peck-kissed, sitting on opposite sides of the back seat and not even touching, I saw him looking at me in the rearview mirror", she said. However, the agency told the Daily News that it has not received complaints about the driver in the past and that it has launched its own investigation.

The couple said they were deeply shaken by the incident, which occurred during Pride Month. The couple was charged the full $22 for the ride.

"Honestly, we were scared and shocked, mostly shocked, because we have never experienced that type of prejudice, especially in New York City", Iovine told NBC News. The women told CNN Uber refunded their $15 fare. "It was a good lesson to show it can happen to you anywhere".

"This blatantly discriminatory behavior described by the complainant is repugnant, and will not be tolerated in the City of New York", Fromberg said.

NYC's TLC, which governs taxis and other "for hire" cars, became aware of the incident after the New York Daily News Story, which included the video the women recorded.

The company responded with a statement saying: 'Uber does not tolerate any form of discrimination, and we have reached out to the rider regarding her experience.

"A$3 driver is most definitely not allowed to do such a thing".

Once over the bridge, Iovine said the driver suddenly pulled over and told the women to get out of the auto.
