The pattern continues
More to the story than first appears
And this complaint may be legit for a change
Guess who they’re trying to fine now?
Good luck with that
In other words, another day ending in a “Y”
And still the gig economy perseveres
Driving a taxi is like indentured servitude, you know
The long haul
The war on the gig economy continues
The worst laid plans
Shutting them down?
Here’s a hint. You won’t need to do a thing
Victims of a government scam
Ladies only, please
Not to mention blatantly discriminatory
“Vasquez was streaming a television show on a phone until about the time of the crash”
More like erasing the cab companies
It’s not the government’s job to protect taxi companies
Protecting the taxi unions
The future’s not so bright
Not really their brand
Standing on principles, sitting in Ubers
You’re still on the job for now, Rubber Duck
And how much privacy are you entitled to in a car?
Not dead yet
I could happen to you
The future’s so bright I’ll probably stay home
“its software was tuned in such a way that it did not react to her”
Sticking it to the man. The little man, that is.
You can be your own car or bike rental service
Crash and hopefully not burn
“Clearly there’s a problem, because the radar also should have picked her up…”
“it would have been difficult to avoid this collision in any kind of mode (autonomous or human-driven)…”
Reality is more complicated than virtual reality
“The vehicle was in autonomous mode at the time of the crash, though a driver was behind the wheel”
Could you be any more obvious?
Turning tragedy into travesty
Spot a problem? Invent a new tax or fee to solve it
The artificial permission scheme is cratering
The taxi unions were complaining again
“I, for one, believe that there’s some gaps, some ambiguities that need to be cleared up.”
Uhhh …. not really.
