It will take people reading media reports of the Uber pay for drivers. Many are from other countries and don't pick up English speaking media reports. They are hoping they have enough until they have their self driving cars working.
Personally, I know how hard it is to pick up some people in high concentrated bar areas and gps that puts you on the road behind the house. There will be a lot of pissed off people even when they are only paying .$.50 a mile.

Well there won't be any 20yr Uber drivers that's for sure. With Uber and other companies investing in driveless cars we can anticipate an eradacation of full time drivers. Part time drivers will remain however there will be no incentive for increased compensation. No one knows how readily Americans will accept these vehicles but I anticipate price will win out. I can see a driverless/driveable hybred vehicle winning out. You order a rental car and it shows up at your house. You can drive it if you don't feel comfortable with the driverless option. Uber drivers will be competing with Apple cars, Google cars, Uber cars and whoever jumps into the driverless market. How long can drivers last before they're all burned? Who knows.? But we'll know soon enough.

It'll be at least a decade before driverless cars are road ready and even then so much trial and error after that.

I can't imagine a driverless car trying to navigate through downtown-anywhere-full-of-traffic without big problems.

is it just me ?
Most drivers i talk to are happy man.
The ones that do it part time literally has no complaints whatsoever.
Most see it as extra income and ones that do it fulltime dont mind racking miles up in their cars .
What this means is they and their cars are slowly turning into what cabs driver & their cabs were...
Slowly but surely

The happiest drivers that get 6 star awards from Uber, dont visit this forum. Thus they will drive until robot over lords take over the world.

The constant negativity on this forum, will make anyone hate life it self.

Self-driving cars will be a while. I'm not saying the technology won't be up to par, but human interaction is necessary in certain instances. I can't see an automated car texting or calling a pax after waiting in front of an address for over 5 minutes. Imagine the anger from the drunk pax when he or she learned that the automated Uber car that everyone raved about just cancelled your ride because your drunk ass dropped the pin 2 blocks away from your actual location. Let me pull up my chair, grab my popcorn and see how this plays out.

yea that's true, if you think about it Uber drivers are like on-site independently contracted CSR's.
