    Holy smokes. What a bunch of fools! Some guys actually out of their cars, bs'ing on the shoulder of the interstate like it is a gas station or the pig pen at the airport. Has anyone actually seen this in their market? I've seen some idiotic behavior by Uber/Lyft drivers in my time but this...

    Unbelievable that a health care facility would call for a rideshare in an attempt to get rid of a patient they don't want. Isn't this illegal?

    Short version: Is stopping in the middle of traffic to pick up or drop off passengers illegal? If so, what should ordinary citizens do about it, if anything? Long version: I often encounter rideshare and taxi drivers who wait for passengers in the middle of the road with their hazard lights on...

    I have had a rash of pax trying to hop onboard with cups of alcohol. I am amazed that they would think this is acceptable or even legal. Are these people this stupid or is there other drivers allowing this? I make them dump them or threaten to cancel the ride. Just boggles my mind!

    So this video was just released on Rideshare Drivers constantly accepting child pax without the proper car/booster seats.....Shocking stuff, but sadly Why am I not surprised? Don't put yourself in a situation where you'll be liable in case of an accident that leaves a child severely injured or...

    I've been noticing a trend for the past four weeks that a Brazilian clique of drivers in my area (London) seem to have significant priority over me and certain other drivers. For example: There could be a dozen drivers parked within close proximity of a very popular restaurant (McDonalds) and...

    So I've been driving around and see many others with the Lyft light on while driving so I figured that's what you do and was never told how I should.

    Self-Driving Cars will be used for all manner of illegal activities. Imagine the possibilities. Do not doubt for a second that Uber will gleefully be complicit. Delivery is too lucrative a market to be ignored. Think of it as "UberEats on steroids". Uber will claim that they have "no way of...
