Uber made big promises in Kenya. Drivers say it’s ruined their lives.

NAIROBI, Kenya — At first, work as an Uber driver seemed to offer Harrison Munala everything he’d hoped for when he moved from a town in the western part of Kenya to its capital, Nairobi.

Uber seemed like the answer to Munala after he had spent nearly 15 years of informal employment as a house cleaner and school bus driver. Many of the energetic hustlers with middle-class aspirations who flock to East Africa’s economic hub thought so, too.

Work with Uber was so good that, about three years ago, after a year having driven a car he rented privately for 15,000 shillings a week (at the time, about $150), Munala, who is now 34, borrowed money from his sister for the down payment on a Toyota Passo, a compact car. And he took out a loan from Izwe, a pan-African microfinance and loan company.

Now, Munala figured, he could work

Being Too Comfortable Using Partial Automation Can Encourage Drivers To Lose Focus

As drivers get more familiar with and develop trust in partial automation, they fidget with electronics and take both hands off the wheel more often. As a result, their attention problems grow and their focus slips. 

Those are the highlights of a new study that examined driver engagement behind the wheel of vehicles with various levels of automation and technology and underscored the need for better safety standards.

The findings were released on Thursday by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a nonprofit financed by the insurance industry, based on new research conducted in conjunction with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AgeLab.

For the study, researchers studied the behavior of drivers of two vehicle models to determine if there

‘X’ gender NY driver’s licenses coming with computer update

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York intends to offer driver’s licenses with a nonbinary gender identity marker of “X,” but it could take more than a year before Department of Motor Vehicles computers will be able to automatically handle the option, state officials said in court filings.

Officials made the disclosure in papers filed in a federal lawsuit brought against them by Sander Saba, who is challenging the state policy of limiting gender identity on licenses to either “male” or “female.” Saba, a nonbinary transgender New York City resident, said in the lawsuit filed by Lambda Legal this summer that the policy is discriminatory.

The state recently moved to dismiss the lawsuit against Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the DMV commissioner as moot. State lawyers argued in court papers that officials late last year had begun planning to “permit New Yorkers to receive a driver’s license that bears an ‘X’ gender identification
