Next, Uber’s credibility is at stake after one of its self-driving vehicles ran a red light. Uber claimed a human was at the wheel, but it turns out Uber lied.

  1. Whatever happened to just calling a taxi? Why must people complicate what does not have to be complicated? Oh, my bad! More technology equals progress.

  2. My view, Shelby, is that Uber is just an way to ruthlessly exploit drivers who have no other way to make a living and to make Uber founder Travis Kalnick enormously rich. Because he pays drivers a pittance, the fares are much lower than taxi fares – which passengers really like. Thanks for commenting.
