I don't. I find the AI to be really fun to go against so I'm constantly seeing random cops and racers. In fact, the lower player count makes it more exhilarating when you stumble upon actual player racers or cops because it's a bit of a rarity. (though I definitely would prefer it if they had way more than just 6 players in a game)
One area where it definitely falls down is organising events with other players, but the GPS feature makes it kinda easy to home in on the vicinity of others, though being able to teleport within a mile or less of them would be much preferred.
And gosh, the weather effects are gorgeous. This and Battlefield 4 are my two PS4 games and it's quite funny how obvious it is that they are both on Frostbite.
