night driving

  1. Advice
    Who else prefers to drive at night? What are your reasons? Pros: 1. Less cars on the road, so it's less overwhelming. 2. If I happen to get a destination to any of the 5 boroughs of NY, I'd much rather drive there at night. NY traffic is more tolerable at night for me. Less pedestrians too. 3...

    A few nights ago, I made a wrong turn into a dead-end street behind the Ramada Inn on Capitol Ave (near Turner Field). A ping (ride request) comes in as I turn to go back onto Fulton. Suddenly, a white sports car pulls up in front of me from a side street, blocking my path. My first thought was...

    I made the mistake of taking a night time block of hours to make my first deliveries...I had 3 hours to deliver 15 packages to 12 stops over a 10 mile radius...no sweat right? I'm driving for logistics, if it matters any. Wrong... I get to the warehouse ON TIME and check in, but I didn't leave...

    Not sure how many on here are female Uber drivers, I imagine there aren't too many on the roads due to the fact almost every 2nd passenger exclaims how I'm only their 1st or 2nd female Uber driver. I've been driving for 4 months, but only recently have started driving at night. I'm always alert...

    I have been driving nights for two years now. You would be amazed on what's sitting on a freeway in the shadows! Get some bright lights if your going to work late nights! Just saw a car on the 101 middle lane no lights on was wrecked! I entered at shea south bound 101. I searched my van for...

    Hi fellow drivers! I've been driving for about a month but have not only drive part time. I was wondering if it was worth it to drive to SMF on a week night and wait for riders? I'm in Lodi so that's about a 30 minute drive..... I plan to do it from 10 PM til 7 AM. I don't really want to do the...

    Child's rhyme: This old man, he played one, He played knick-knack on my drum With a knick-knack paddywhack, Give the dog a bone, This old man came rolling home. Yup, it's 9PM Friday Oct 28 and I am home, sucking down some cocktails and watching Vin Diesel in THE LAST WITCH-HUNTER (not a...

    Yesterday night I had the worst experience as an Uber driver. I got a request from a Strip Club and I accepted it. I drive at nights and I get requests from Strip Clubs. Generally I have nice conversations with the passengers and they are good tippers. This time there was a man, woman and a...

    This poor Uber fella got hit hard. Didn't even hear braking, just the sound of two heavy, metal objects in motion crashing. The driver who hit him probably wasn't paying any attention it seems. Be Safe!
