Nor were they intended to be in control. If I'm driving a car and no one told you, and let you believe you were driving the car, that isn't me misdirecting the vehicle, It's you being ignorant of who is in control. The yacht was going on its intended course controled by the people who were given control. The crew were just patsies pressing
buttons and turning wheels.
If you have control of the vehicle, you can't misdirect it is my point. Just because their control was obfuscated doesn't mean misdirection.
Probably would have been clearer if I decided to make my stand on the word 'hijack' instead.
The summary fails. Not a big surprise, FTFA.
"Now, around 12 million Tumblr blogs marked "adult" have been removed from Tumblr's internal search; "
And that is not a taxi service how? There are regulations set up for taxis that they must follow. The government and people of the city/state/
If you want to argue on if the government should be involved in this sort of transaction, that's another conversation.
Also, disagreeing with a law, doesn't give you the right to skirt it. We have a system in place to change laws. Use it. In the mean time if you wish to live in this society, obey its laws.(this is more of a general statement against a ton of people lately that seem to think that breaking the law is ok if you don't think its just, not necessarily you entroplus)
The ride sharing services, are trying to skirt the law. They are taxis but they try to act like they are somehow something else. As if they are just all friends giving each other rides, thus the name..
from the article,
"In addition to franchise and inspection fees, regulated taxis have to serve far-flung and low-income parts of the city where Lyft drivers need not venture. The city also requires cab companies to offer disabled-accessible vehicles, "
The ride sharing services don't have to do any of that.
Thanks for the link.
They are taxi's that found a loop hole and will soon be shut down. It's unfair to the real taxis and the government isn't getting their cut. This won't last.
Also the article sites people using them as an alternative to taxis when coming home from the bar. Yes, that's a good way to watch a car trend. Since drunk driving is illegal, and these people are using 'taxis', they don't want cars and no longer ride alone...
These articles are just writers trying to get out ahead of a trend. If they are wrong no one will remember, if they are right, they can point to how they saw the trend comming. They are BS articles filled with outlier data. I'd be more apt to believe Gen Y doesn't want cars because they are all deep in debt due to college and don't have jobs to pay for them.
