DMV.us.org: Uber Kansas Shutdown Is Harbinger Of Things To Come

DMV.us.org has long believed that the Uber car ride service has a lot of potential. But over the past few months, DMV.us.org has started to think that Uber may be doomed by bad business decisions. Their announcement yesterday that they will no longer offer their services in Kansas makes the DMV.us.org staff think we are right.

Last week, the Kansas government passed a law saying that all Uber drivers have to go through a background check with the state police before they can drive people in their cars. Uber then responded that this was too difficult for them to manage, and decided to shut down their service completely in Kansas.

The government decision comes after women in several U.S. states and multiple countries have complained about being raped or robbed by Uber drivers. You would think that the company would want to avoid this – and background checks would help the problem.

The fact that the company would rather close down in a state than make sure their drivers are not rapists shows that they don’t have the will or ability to make their service safe. That will mean closer scrutiny by other states, and eventually the death of Uber as a company.

DMV.us.org Thinks Montreal Is Right To Seize Uber Cars

DMV.us.org used to be a fan of the Uber car service. But as time has gone on DMV.us.org can no longer support the company. The fact that they don’t care about the law at all tells us at DMV.us.org that their time is over. Because of that we fully support the efforts of Montreal police to shut them down.

Montreal has made it illegal for anyone to provide paid transportation in the city unless they have a valid taxi license. Uber drivers do not. Therefore it is illegal for Uber to operate in the city. Yet, instead of trying to change the law Uber has chosen to simply ignore it.

This weekend the city decided it had enough. It had cops log onto the service and ask for a ride. When the driver showed up they seized their cars. To get them back the drivers must pay a $500 find and a $1,000 impound storage charge.

We think that’s a good thing. The Uber drivers knew they were breaking the law. They did so to make some extra money. If they get fined more than they make they’ll stop doing it and Uber will move out of the city. That’s how companies should behave – they should obey the law or they should leave.

Uber has had many chances to prove itself. It has failed each and every time. Now, finally authorities are cracking down and we hope they continue to do so.

DMV.us.org Disgusted GM Won’t Have To Pay For Ignition Switch Deaths

DMV.us.org has done our best to keep you up to date on the scandal involving the ignition switches on General Motors cars. And for a while DMV.us.org was convinced that the courts were going to do the right thing. But today we at DMV.us.org are outraged that the company is going to get off scot-free.

Here’s the back story. For years, GM knew there was a big problem with their cars. If people put too many keys on their key ring it would cause the cars to suddenly stop in the middle of traffic. GM hid this from the public because they thought it would be too expensive to fix.

Then, over a dozen people died and many more were injured by the defect. That’s when GM finally issued a recall to fix the problem.

The relatives of the dead and injured sued GM for damages, but yesterday a judge ruled the company won’t have to pay. It seems that just before making the recall announcement GM created a subsidiary company and transferred all their assets to it. Then they declared their many company bankrupt.

The judge ruled that it was the original company that was at fault, so people can’t sue the subsidiary, and that he would not allow lawsuits to proceed against a bankrupt company.

That is incredibly sketchy and shows that GM simply doesn’t care about their customers at all.

DMV.us.org: Homeland Security Should Not Have Access To License Plate Tracking Systems

DMV.us.org has long respected the right to privacy. This is why the DMV.us.org privacy policy is so strongly worded. It’s also why we think that plans for the Department of Homeland Security to access a national license plate tracking system is very scary.

We at DMV.us.org hope public pressure will make them back down from their plans.

Homeland Security is looking to pay money to have access to every traffic camera in the entire United States. They would then use license plate recognition technology to know exactly where every car in the country is at any given time. They could even track a given car’s movements in real time.

They would be able to do all of this without getting a warrant.

Since many people spend much of their day in their cars, this would give the federal government the ability to track each and every one of us without any legal justification at all.

That’s a step too far – and would eliminate the right to privacy for millions of Americans.

We think that’s wrong, and we ask you to write your congressperson and tell them so.

DMV.us.org: Don’t Have Sex In The Back Of Taxis

DMV.us.org believes in freedom of expression. And the DMV.us.org staff are not prudes. However, we do think that people shouldn’t do anything that would distract the person who is behind the wheel. So we can’t believe we have to say this, but DMV.us.org strongly advises people to stop having sex in the back of taxis.

This issue came up recently when The New York Times took a look at who uses the Uber car service and why. What they found was that the group least likely to use Uber and take a regular cab instead were members of the Millennial generation.

The poll asked them why, and the general response was astounding. Because Uber drivers can rate Uber customers, Millennials were worried they would get a bad rating if they had sex in the back of an Uber car. They said they would rather get into a taxi, where the driver can’t ruin their reputation if they get it on during the ride.

That shows a lack of respect and common sense. If you are screwing in the back of a cab, obviously that’s going to be a distraction to the driver. And more likely than not, a taxi driver doesn’t want to see or hear you having sex – remember, it is his or her workplace.

You probably wouldn’t want that happening next to your desk, would you?

DMV.us.org Hopes Police Catch The Bowel Movement Bandit

DMV.us.org believes cars should be treated with respect. And DMV.us.org is against any offense involving a car. Because of that, DMV.us.org hopes that Akron police have their best men searching for the “Bowel Movement Bandit.”

The man has become famous in the city over the past week because he had crapped on the hoods of 19 different cars. Police said they have no reason to think he will stop anytime soon, as every morning they continue to get reports of cars with poop on them.

He has been photographed in the act, and his picture has run on local televisions stations – but nobody has turned him in. So, the police are on a manhunt for him and have labeled him the “Bowel Movement Bandit.”

This has to stop. As Jules says in Pulp Fiction, “You don’t mess with a man’s vehicle.” And we don’t think that Akron residents should have to take any more crap from this.

In addition, when caught we want to know what he’s been eating, because 19 poops is a lot of poops in just under two weeks.

DMV.us.org: Increased Car Sales Show Economy Improving

DMV.us.org keeps our eyes on everything to do with cars, because we know our readers love to drive. The DMV.us.org staff also keeps up with what’s going on with the economy because we know it effects all of us. That’s why we are excited here at DMV.us.org to provide you with good car news about the economy.

Despite the fact that winter has dropped a ton of snow on the ground and kept people inside this year, sales of nearly every type of car – except Nissans – were up this winter over last year. In fact, Chrysler managed to see a 5.6 percent increase in sales over this time last year.

That’s not only good for the automakers, it’s good for the rest of us too. The reason is that auto sales are one of the leading indicators of the state of the economy. If they are up, that means the overall economy is up as well.

In other words, people have more jobs – and the jobs they have are paying better, which leads to more disposable income.

We are glad that after years of dealing with the Great Recession, things are starting to look up. We hope this trend continues and that prosperity is around the corner.

DMV.us.org: Don’t Fall For Phony Anti-Tesla Ads

DMV.us.org knows that you are concerned about car safety. And we at DMV.us.org understand that you want the facts about how safe a car is before you get behind the wheel. We are committed to telling you the truth, which is why DMV.us.org wants to make sure that people don’t fall for scare tactics being used by car dealerships to hurt the reputation of Tesla automobiles.

Car dealerships hate the Tesla. This is because customers can buy it directly from the factory and don’t have to go to a dealership at all. This saves consumers money, but cuts profits from the dealerships who typically act as the middleman.

What some car dealerships have started to do to get back at Tesla is hire people to create dozens of websites that appear to be full of news articles saying that Teslas are deathtraps. The idea is to make people think Teslas are unsafe, so that they decide to buy a different car.

The truth is the exact opposite. In fact, every single model of Tesla on the market has the highest car safety ranking of any car in history. Every single other car on the road is more dangerous than driving a Tesla.

These websites contain fake news stories designed to trick you. Don’t fall for them.

DMV.us.org: There Should Be An Investigation Of The Connection Between Uber And MADD

DMV.us.org has been paying close attention to the development of Uber, the car service. The DMV.us.org staff thinks it can be a real game changer. But DMV.us.org also believes that it might have problems that need to be addressed to ensure that it is a safe company that does business honestly.

Uber is no stranger to controversy. It has already been banned in France and India for using drivers that have sexually assaulted passengers. Recently, the company has tried to shift the discussion to the benefits of using Uber – mostly by claiming that their company reduces drunk driving injuries and deaths.

The company was challenged to back up that idea, and then several days later did so by pointing to a statement issued by Mothers Against Drunk Driving saying that they believed Uber does in fact keep drunk drivers off the road.

But now it turns out that the statement from MADD may have been bought and paid for. Apparently Uber made a deal where if MADD made a statement in favor of the company, Uber would give them $10 for each new customer who signed up that day.

That puts into question whether MADD was being honest about their opinion of the service or not. And until the full extent of the connection between MADD and Uber is out in the open, we will not be convinced that the service really does reduce drunk driving fatalities.

Between Amazon Drones And Google Robots, DMV.us.org Believes Skynet Is Upon Us

The news lately is getting a little scary for those of us at DMV.us.org. First we heard about Amazon planning to deliver packages by drones in the near future. Now, this weekend the DMV.us.org staff learned that Google is buying up robotics companies – and won’t even say why. DMV.us.org does not believe this can end well.

Have these people never seen a James Cameron film? We all know what happens when the robots and drones become too smart. They turn on us, starting world wars to eliminate their creators. And our only hope is that John Connor can come up with a way to send other robots back in time to save us! But, there is always the risk that those robots will turn on us or that evil corporations will use their technology to make the end of the world happen even sooner.

Do we really want to live in a world where the robots and drones try to take over? We think not. And, why, exactly won’t Google tells us why they are buying up robotics companies?

Perhaps “Google” is the word for “Skynet” in their evil robot language. We won’t know until it happens – but right now we fear the future.

Nobody wants to live in a barren, war-swept world just because Amazon and Google wanted to make a little extra money. It’s not fair to ordinary people like us who just want to live life to the fullest and not fight an evil robotic army.
