    Cross the road you lazy pax

    Pax are mostly clueless. They’ll post up on left side of a one way street when they need an immediate right turn. On a two way street, they will wait on the side opposite of the direction they’re going. They’ll wait just past the freeway on-ramp. They stand behind signs and light poles. I...

    Thanks for the 1 star, Dale Gribble.

    Report him for offering cash for rides. It’s against TOS, and Uber definitely wants its cut.

    I knew the coffee wasn't staying in the cup...

    Only a complete fool would think what the OP said about “sounding like a 13 yr old girl” meant he thought she was a 13 yr old girl. I can flap my lips and sound like a motorcycle but even over the phone, I wouldn’t be mistaken for one.

    I knew the coffee wasn't staying in the cup...

    Was she arguing before you said, “No open containers in my car, you have to get rid of the coffee”? People react to the way things are presented to them. Showing concern (even if you really don’t care if she boils her face off) will usually get a better reaction than what you received.

    I knew the coffee wasn't staying in the cup...

    A more non-confrontational way of dealing with this is by expressing your concern for her safety. Hot coffee is an open cup in a moving vehicle can result in her injury. No coffee or no ride, but with only her safety in mind.

    Another Tesla autopilot fatality.

    Of course that’s right. And highway speed isn’t safe in neighborhoods. It’s not the cars’ features, it’s the drivers and how they choose to use them. My point is, the focus is on the three deaths, not the lives saved. I imagine this same argument occurred when seatbelts were first introduced.

    Another Tesla autopilot fatality.

    Yes, it does. I’m not talking about a particular road. I’m talking about all miles driven, by all cars. Or did you think 40,000 people were killed on the same street last year?

    Another Tesla autopilot fatality.

    And Tesla’s have ludicrous mode. 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds. Still, their autopilot rate is 1/5 the rate of cars with drivers. The fact that the third death is even reported nationally is proof of the rarity. 3 in the entire history of autopilot or 109 a day for standard cars. And, it does “work...

    Another Tesla autopilot fatality.

    40,000 people died in car accidents in 2017 or 1.25 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled, in conventional cars. Tesla reports over 1.2 billion autopilot miles, with three deaths or 0.25 per 100 million miles driven.
