Uber Autonomous car kills pedestrian.

I guess I take issue with every time this topic comes up it's a case of jump on the bashing bandwagon because your so afraid of technology and something stealing your job.

Technology doubles every year things are moving faster and faster. Servers don't crash like they used to this isn't the windows 95 days anymore. And redundancy is built into mission critical systems three levels deep.

Your argument about looking at people's windows and eyes are great you have two visual sensors how many can a computer have? Far more.

The technology is evolving it's not ready yet but that doesn't mean it won't be. And arguments like they said this 20 years ago but it never happened. Guys it's 2018 the technology is not even close to what you had back in the 90's.

Do you think they would be testing on roads if it wasn't close? You think a company could just send out an automated vehicle and think hey will fix what we find and to hell with everyone else on the road?

Look at cars all the new sensors smart cruise control lane departure warning, emergency braking these are all little pieces of the big picture and yes boys when it's ready machines will rule the roads and humans will be a fall back that as time goes on will be needed less and less.

Now go ahead and put your heads in the sand turn on your VCR's and keep searching for blockbuster.

I don't know what to do!

Jenn your entering a new field and I understand your hit hard times financially but you need to prove your responsible and you should of had some savings before going unemployed and now living in your car starving? You knew there would be testing fee's etc, didn't you have a plan for this before?

What was your plan to even feed yourself for the few weeks your in school?

You need to understand your going to be asked to plan your days meticulously and days in advance sometimes so you need to get it together.

Go to the food bank get a good meal because you don't want to be tested driving a truck starving.

Too many red flags.

Dash cam Videos! (Viewer discression is advised)

Try looking into After effects or FFmpg for some video editing.

If your skilled enough the new Javafx platform has all the features any professional editing software has but you need to be able to code in order to use the various functions.

Nice start now beatify it.

Looking for advice and/or opinions. Be nice

Sounds more like you have your own bias, I don't know many men who feel or act that way at all.

"test twice before being allowed to do a job that men are allowed to do without testing." Seriously in this day if your good your good if you suck they test you over an over because it's not so easy to can someone.

Why would they spend money testing more than needed and NOT test a man this isn't 1960 maybe the problem was you?

And maybe just maybe this case worked said that because you come across as someone who blames men for your troubles and Trucking is generally considered a mans world although that's changing fast.

I have a hard time believing just because your a woman they make you test twice. I really do.

Got two tickets

States with no insurance also require you to have Proof of Financial Responsibility up to 25k set aside or pay some states a min each year. Did you do this or have you got this set aside?

There is no free ride sir, you can have cash or bond set aside in place of insurance but there is no place that says go drive the car have no financial ability to cover the accident and get off the hook while everyone else pays over there $ to the insurance companies. Well not in N/A. States with no insurance do require the driver to be able to be financially responsible so can you prove you have the funds set aside as insurance?

I think you need to review the laws in your state because if there was a place I could move to pay no insurance and drive around the country I would certainly change my address as would every other hard working fool out here.

New Tesla electric truck

Average car weight now: 4,079 Average Tesla car weight: 4,608

The weight isn't that much more for cars right now so I doubt it would be a massive reduction in weight you can haul.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/joannmuller/2017/11/20/why-robo-taxi-deal-is-great-news-for-volvo-but-maybe-not-for-uber/#6048afef7da7

24000 taxi's coming out that will be fully automated running a fleet in cities so to say the tech is way down the line is just kidding yourself and it's just a matter of time. It's being worked on all the time and getting way better.

Powering stations are growing a lot and I see them more and more even in some remote ass CA location. There on there way it's just a reality. And there easier to install that a new gas station so it won't take long.

I think we just need to get used to the idea that it's coming.

Good trainer or bad trainer

Put me in a hotel - Nice! where there was a lot of drugs users - So you don't do drugs whats the problem? No restaurants around me but one had to walk on a road to get to the restaurant - Poor baby? plus I'm a diabetic so I grab me a greyhound ticket and left - So you said you could be a diabetic and do the job but you quit?

Help on what to do

Robert R. I wouldn't play the race card. I wouldn't get upset when my mommy wont tell me what he said. Maybe it was along the lines of lady cut the lad lose already let him grow a pair already.

I wouldn't have *****ed like a little baby about a co driver. And I certainly would have checked my truck before I slept in it.

I also would have read my contract and not be looking at making a list of excuses because I failed and need a way out.

Get over it get back to work get a new truck start running miles.

How you played your cards and laid out your complaints sounds like your looking for a way to get out of it.

Played the Racist card. Blamed the other driver for Personal attacks. Blamed the new guy in the truck. Then bugs.

Sounds like you complained a lot and to say "I have the patience of a saint" seem to contradict your post.

Enhanced Driver's License vs Passport

If your coming up here a lot get a FAST card, passport's work but take more time for you to cross. You'll like Canada but Montreal which is in Quebec has it's own set of rules for the road you need to be aware of. And they make every other province use EN and FR on the road signs but not in QB so be prepared to have signs you can't read. And watch the speed limits we do KPM not MPH.

Stop worrying about "driverless trucks"

I think you all know my take on this and I won't go off again but in case you want to know how to we can save little Timmy.

The tech has a long way to go to be perfected but we already have trucks being field tested with this technology so to bury our heads and say something will never happen isn't the way to go.
