Until that is all sorted, which will be never....well not within the next 10-20-30 years, who knows........there will not be autonomous vehicles.

In a capitalist society who has least money. The driver.

Notable exceptions will be made for politicians, their friends, families, Premiership footballers and X factor no marks. They’ll be blameless accidents of course.

Re: Uber licence revoked

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56412397

Quote:
Uber says it will give its 70,000 UK drivers a guaranteed minimum wage, holiday pay and pensions.

The ride-hailing app giant said all drivers would earn at least the National Living Wage, which is £8.72 an hour and rises to £8.91 next month.

It comes one month after the US firm lost a legal battle in the UK, begun in 2016, over drivers' status.

Uber told the BBC it did not expect the change in drivers' conditions to mean higher fares.

However, analysts said the company increased prices in California after a similar ruling and was likely to do the same in the UK.

Yes, I noticed that bit yesterday.
My first thought was all those drivers 'working' 40 hours a week but 'earning' just under the threshold to qualify for 'benefits'.

Tax payer screwed while employer gets richer?
