The recent announcement by UBER, as follows, "From 8 December, the Uber App will be updated and to help you manage your time the app will notify when you are close to 12 hours driving. If you reach 12 hours driving time, the app will stay offline for a 6 hour rest period. For more information and frequently asked questions, head to the link below", is a creditable effort by UBER. However, whilst working in the Oil and Gas industry and managing a large group of specialists, we were not permitted to allow are people to return to work within 10 hours following a 12 hour shift. I don't want to be seen as making life difficult for UBER drivers, but being on the road, concentrating on driving, safety is certainly a key issue for both driver and passengers and a 6 hour break is hardly sufficient to rest before starting another 12 hour driving shift, especially if it continued over a prolonged period.
