After 12 hours of driving, drivers will be banned from accepting rides for the next six hours.

    I think this a great initiative. There was just an Uber that crashed into a school bus from being over tired.

    What happens if you take a half hour break in the middle? Article is not clear. Can I drive for 8 hours, take a quick break, and then go drive for another 12?

    Seems like a decent move. As a rider I have had some scary rides.

    12 hours isn't that long. This limit seems low to me.

    This is old news, no?  Oh, it's six months old.

    I feel like, "ban", is kind of a strong word.  It's just disallowing the driver to stop working for a few hours so he or she can get some rest.  It's being enforced by most cities like Chicago anyways.
