 British Uber drivers will now have to take a six-hour break after they have accepted and made trips with passengers totaling 10 hours. Helpful or not?

    Thumbs Up! I have had drivers practically falling asleep on me from excessive hours of driving.

      Agreed. So many drivers are jsut in it for money these days. The drive for cash is all too real (no pun intended)

    No. This is dumb. It should be up to the drivers to determine when they are too tired to work. I mena come on, these are adults, let them make the decision!

      but apparently adult drivers cannot make this decision as all too many are getting in accidents after excessive driving.
