That’s when we forget the most
In the United States, Saturday and Sunday are some of the most forgetful days of the week. At the same time, most applications appear in April – this month also includes two days with record entries 5 and 9. The first day of the new year is in third place. Conversely, the most common time of day to report lost items is 11pm, as some are either just ending the day or just starting the night.
Interestingly, Uber also pointed to trends in forgetting individual items on specific days of the week. It turns out that chargers are most often forgotten on Mondays, and keys are forgotten on Tuesdays. On Wednesdays, it’s wallets, and on Thursdays, cash. Fridays are the days when most passengers lose their watches and jewelry, and on Saturdays they lose their passports. On the last day of the week, Uber cars receive the most complaints about grocery shopping.
Uber in Poland – important changes in the law
It is worth recalling here the draft amendment to the Road Traffic Act. It provides, among others, solutions to increase the safety of passengers using passenger transport applications.
Minister of Digitization Janusz Cieszyński he pointed out that the draft amendment also provides for tougher penalties. – These penalties go up 25 times, it will be up to a million zlotys. This is particularly important because the companies that could potentially pay these penalties are large, international corporations and these penalties should be adequate to their financial capabilities. Fine of 40,000 PLN is not a sufficient penalty, he said.
