The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I humbly suggest just one simple requirement that Uber shall comply with. Uber shall provide all its drivers a magnetic sign placing on top of the car. The sign shall be clearly read as "UBER". When passengers are not in the car, the sigh shall be lit on. The sign will be lit off only when passengers are in the car. The sign requirement will bring in the following benefits to the society: 1 Passengers can easily identify the "UBER" car and get in quickly. 2 We can see how many "UBER" cars on the road with light ON (means no passengers in the car) 3 If there are too may "UBER" cars on the street with light ON, that is wasting gas, time and energy. There is just one pie. More drivers means smaller slice for each driver. Driver get hurts. Uber still get the same pie regardless of the number of the drivers. Passengers will get faster pick up time because of the saturated drivers. Saturated drivers will cut down driver's income substantially. Also, saturated drivers will cause air pollution, road congestion and wasting of gas, energy, time in driving Uber clueless on the road in hoping to receive a request. In conclusions, we must set a limit number of UBER drivers. UBER would like everyone drive for UBER. The city shall set a limit of drivers allowed so as to protect the environment and the society.
