  • A surge disappears as soon as you cross into the red border
  • You drive towards a surge... You get pings in the opposite direction
  • Slow night, no pings. You stop to take a leak. It goes off.

1) Don't chase surges and you won't have that problem
2) If you were already heading for that area any how then yes its annoying as hell. Otherwise see 1.
3) This is how you know there is a God. He likes to amuse himself doing things such as this. Just accept and hurry in the bathroom.

When its surging in a specific area, newbies need to learn to go offline until they get to the hotspot again. Tulsa market is a little different as it's a fairly small city. We have three zones...downtown corridor, airport and then everything else. If you drop off six miles away and immediately accept a ping from the surge zone(downtown always), its stupid. Go offline, get downtown and the surge will last longer.

the problem with surge the reason it stay orange in never goes red our it red and only goes to 1.5 is cause the drivers in that area dont know how to turn the driver app off and look at the passanger app and let the surge build

Exactly this! Too many drivers accepting .85 per mile pings and think they're really making money...Drives me nuts!
