I met a uber driver in jfk and his eyes were blood red.... He told me he loves uber because the more u work the more u earn :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
You already know my stance on this issue. I'm just curious how a pax would feel knowing uber wants their drivers on the road for more than 12 hours at a time. I doubt any pax would get in a car with a driver if he is on his 14th hour. No morals or ethics.

I remeber when uber used to clamin that drivers make morethan 100,000 and then eventually pax and general people actually realized its all bullshit and after the recent rate cuts everybody knows how uber treat drivers.
Is there any change in uber's popularity ?
Trust me these pax think we're part of the machine not humans, they just need a ride from point a to point b.
I agree they would definitely don't like if their drivers are falling a sleep while driving but if their drivers are not sleepy they just dont care if the driver is behind the wheel for 20 hours.

Seriously, few riders told me that their uber driver was sleepy and one of them said the driver fell into sleep while sitting at the red light. No surprise there.

What if you going to auto mechanic shop ,do you want to make sure that your mechanic had enough sleep? If not, it's really dangerous, so, I think it's got to be mandatory for auto repair shops too .What if you go diner or restaurant and cook didn't have a chance to sleep for whatever reason, actually instead of your favorite dish he could pour some dangerous liquid and you could easily get poisoned.Want more examples? By the way, why this issue concerns only uber drivers?Medallion owner can work more then 12 hours a day if he doesn't share his car with someone else.What about numerous black car companies? They will also have to be verified and controlled? Local car services? Who is going to control them? Generally, sleepy driver may be even guy who drive his personal car if he spent whole night making love with his girlfriend.So, let's check him too

If we are really talking about public safety, the bottom line is to control that driver will spend this mandatory free 12 hours a day for a real rest.What if he suffers sleeplessness? What if he internet and Facebook junky and instead of sleeping he will just sit behind computer and waste time just playing computer games or chatting in social networks?In this case , this 12 hours regulation will go in vanes......So, my point is that after all possible restrictions and regulations, everyone have to have personal responsibility how to manage his free time and life in general. If everyone,including drivers and TLC authorities comprehend this idea, we wouldn't need any 12 hours or 14 hours restrictions.

Wait a second!! I thought according to the data your lovely employer Uber released all the time, 90% of the drivers work part time with 10 hours or less. If that's the case why Uber even need to worry about the 12 hours rule LOL!

Hi Admitter, Interesting. I recently read that Uber is discouraging people from driving more than 12 hours in this article: https://techcrunch.com/2016/06/29/u...s-like-break-reminders-daily-driving-reports/
What did they say in their email or text to you on the subject? What I would like to know is where they really stand on the issue. Are they for discouraging long shifts or do they want people to be able to drive as long as their eyes are open?

Here is the email i recieved from uber with the title
" This TLC rule would limit your ability to earn "




My Name,

The TLC wants to adopt a new rule that would limit the amount of time you and other FHV drivers can spend on the road earning money.

Tell the TLC not to limit your ability to earn:

SIGN THE PETITION


We often hear from driver-partners that the most valued part of partnering with Uber is the flexibility. Somedays, you may work 1 hour and other days, you may want to work 12 hours. Right now, you have the ability to choose your own schedule. But the TLC’s proposed rule would hinder that ability by:
  • Prohibiting a driver from picking up passengers for hire for more than 12 hours in any 24-hour period;
  • Prohibiting a driver from picking up passengers for hire for more than 72 hours in any seven-day period;
  • Resetting the 12-hour clock for a driver after any period in which he or she has gone at least eight consecutive hours without pickups.
On a busy day, a driver who wants to earn more could want to work a 13th hour, but this rule would forbid that.

Please tell the TLC not to pass a new rule that would limit your ability to earn. Sign this petition today and tell them to preserve your flexibility and reconsider this rule.

SIGN THE PETITION

I could care less about helping an Uber cause however I don't believe TLC scumbags should be able to place these kind of restrictions on self-employed business owners. We don't work for the TLC or the city. They shouldn't be allowed to dictate how long one can or cannot work. IMO, this will actually lead to more accidents when the money-strapped drivers run against the clock to make their nut.

The tlc hands out the licenses, they can make the rules. This is their lame way of trying to lean the herd without the outright stepping on uber toes.

Thanks for sharing, Admitter. Not sure how this activist position reconciles with the information in the other article I read. They probably say they are doing those things to get out ahead of the legislation that might mandate certain hours. When I get tired, I stop. I have ridden with a few drivers that looked exhausted, so I know it is a real thing for some folks but 007 makes a good point that the restriction might make people manic to qualify.

Like everything else, it all goes back to the rates. They are so meager that it forces people to drive for incentives, which are hard to meet because of all the vague stuff that happens out on the road with cancellations, acceptance rates and those long trips that take drivers out of the incentive zones. If the rates were better, I think most of those collateral issues would diminish.
