    This isn't a GREAT story, but it tickled me. I'm 65 years old and drive drunks in a college town - Roll Tide - I have fun and keep a 4.97 rating. Anyway, last Saturday night pull up to the bars for a pax. Great looking girl jumps in the car and quickly says, "Who's this for!?" "Jack" "Okay", and...

    had a fare who requested multiple stops that took longer than expected. The last of which was 27 minutes! When she returned she offered me $10 cash tip for having to wait so long. I accepted and thanked her, but was still very unhappy. I decided to stop and grab a bite to eat and to unwind...

    I sincerely hope that none of you experienced drivers would be using the app and driving around while impaired. That is the obvious part. What has been your experience on R.I.D.E. stops with Peel, Toronto, York, or Durham officers? I've gone through two of these so far this season, and one...

    One) Picked up a dude standing at a street onramp. I was NOT expecting someone to set their pickup on the side of an onramp/offramp near Safeco Field and yet... there's this guy waving his phone at me and legitimately here was the little yellow man icon. He was a cool guy and all, but... this...

    This article is intended for discussion on the minutiae of a situation that is bound to happen (often) to any regular Uber/Lyft Driver.

    You approach your pax's destination on a dark, quiet street. It's after 1:00 am on a weeknight. Before you come to a complete stop, your pax already has the door open and is exiting the car. Because your pax has had a bit too much to drink, she stumbles getting out and your door flies open and...

    Carjacked... or at least it was a very accurate imitation of one. I was stopped at a light when a drunk walked into traffic, opened the front passenger door before I could get to the lock button, and tried to get in. I told him repeatedly to get out, then pepper-sprayed him when he refused...
