Delivery services such as Glovo, Rappi and Pedidos Ya have been shut down by a judge in the city of Buenos Aires (CABA) for not complying with local legislation.
Apparently the companies that run these apps are not providing the correct equipment, many of the bicycle and motorbike riders don't wear helmets and most don't have adequate insurance.
The judge also ordered that banks and credit card companies block payments and it was also reported that the apps themselves should be blocked in the City, but how that would be policed is anyone's guess.
The city police are now stopping those that flout the ban, with their equipment being confiscated. Mayor Larreta says it's a political move by judge Gallardo and he has left thousands of delivery workers without jobs.
