    @scottkirsten @Boston.com who wrote a puff piece about Uber and a guy who uses a Tesla to give $17.00 rides sez that it is not distracted driving. So typical of the ubertarians nothing is ever as it really is in the real world. check out the video that clearly shows the guy is using the app at the wheel. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2014/02/what_happened_when_a_boston_en.html
