I see. You didn't convince me to support a change to the Uber model here in Germany, but thanks for the insight.
Oh. And how does that help me pay for my nurse the next 40 years after you fucked up my life (let's assume)?
Thanks for the effort, I am not getting it and Google gives me nothing useful. E.g., how is it a good thing if my insurances company waives my rights to further compensation.
Sorry, not familiar with the jargon: what does "you accept it as payment in full" mean?
But see, 30k, 100k, and 300k are all the same woefully inadequate for medical liability. If you miss a stop sign, we have an accident and I as your passenger remain immobile drooling out of my mouth for the next 40 years, your insurance's 300k won't do me much good.
See, and that's why we do not want Uber to undermine what we have by simply ignoring the law.
Thanks. I couldn't find coverage numbers for commercial transportation of people, but here's the numbers for the liability insurance a private car owner is required to have. That's the minimum coverage required by law:
7.5 mil EUR for bodily injury.
1 mil EUR for property damage.
50k EUR for financial loss.
The sums for commercial vehicles are probably higher.
oh a side note how does one drive differently with a paying customer as apposed to a family member??
It's simple insurance mathematics. The insurance for taxis is most likely simply higher because the payouts are higher. Much more time on the road, etc. And it makes sense to require that a professional driver has adequate insurance for his passengers - which is a lot of coverage if you consider that a mistake can put 4 passengers in a wheelchair for decades.
1 mil is not much though: cause an accident with 2 passengers who remain maimed for life, and you have to pay for their care for the next 40 years, plus destroyed cars, road damage, whatever. Those things simply happen when you reach a certain scale of number of rides. A bog-standard private general liability insurance here gives you 6 mil coverage for like 5 EUR per month or so.
Uber only provides contacts and NOT transportation services.
How do they get paid?
I don't see the problem here.
The problem is that in Germany we generally (there are exceptions) don't like to let people die out i the streets because they made a stupid decision. These uninsured health bills will still get paid, by taxes.
3000 emails per week of course.
Assuming 3000 emails in an 8 hour workday, 5 days a week, this is one email every 48 seconds on average, all the time. And if you compress its handling into part of the day, it means spending approx. 2 hours when you spend 2 seconds per email. How does this "represent a few seconds of distraction here and there a worst"?
I frequently come back from a week out of the office and have several thousand unread emails. Keeping up with that amount of crap as it comes in is a tolerable waste of time
You get thousands of emails a week and dealing with that is just fine unless you are on vacation?
With your attitude of "the audience is dumb", you should work at a network.
Not sure how you are getting from the factual statement I made to the phantasy you are projecting on me.
