A 63-year-old woman has been cited for being an Uber driver in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Seacoast Online reports that because Uber has not complied with the city's new transportation ordinance, Stephanie Franz has been cited for working for Uber.

Franz said she was driving around 12:30 a.m. Saturday when she picked up two women who had requested a ride through Uber at the Portsmouth Brewery. A short time later, she was pulled over by police. She is set to appear in court Dec. 7 and could be fined up to $500.

Uber intends to represent Franz in court and pay any fines.
