So Uber tracks our accelerations and braking because they prefer their passengers be comfortable when you mow over bicyclists and pedestrians, because hard braking is dangerous driving.

Here is an example of Uber dinging me twice for the same instances because their own NannySoftware doesn't realize that "separate" UberPool trips are in the same friggin vehicle.

I wonder how Uber's algorithm atones for me making it from Rosslyn back out to Tyson's for a pick-up in 7 minutes. And then making the exact same "quick acceleration" in the exact same spot, paradoxically at the exact same time, though on different trips.

Your attempt at snark miserably failed. If you knew HPClays the way a lot of us in this area do, or read any of his previous posts, you'd know he's about the furthest thing from a snowflake you'll find. He's also one of the smartest drivers that posts here. I've increased profitability by following advice I've gotten from him.

He was venting about Uber being overly intrusive and constantly harassing us with meaningless driving notifications. I agree it's extremely annoying. He was trying to make a point, but you on your haughty high horse need to play internet snark genius.

Why don't you go back to Philly, make some freezer snowballs to throw at Santa Claus, and learn to think before you post.

I have a 2006 vehicle that has never needed new shocks, only needed brake pads once, and never needed a new clutch, yet has 220,000 miles on it, including racing offroad three times. Please tell me more about how I'm a bad driver that destroys my cars because I triggered Uber's accelerometer alarm once.

Your credibility is definitely growing!

Yea, I read through them with a smile too.

Lol. Yeah believable story and I'm sure your boyfriend will back you up on this one with more video.

Your car has 206k miles and never needed shocks = you have no idea what worn out shocks feel like.

220k and one set of pads.

You must think people are total idiots to believe such ridiculous crap.

Queue the, I work on my own cars and know more about car repair than everyone.

So it was my response that triggered you but not his:

"Why don't you go back to Philly, make some freezersnowballs to throw at Santa Claus,"

Cause that made perfect sense....
Philadelphia has the worst fans in all of sports. Says a lot when your old Eagles stadium had a jail in it.

Stay classy Philly.

I have Ceramic brake pads and got 80k out of them without scoring the rotors.
However, I have a chauffeur's foot. Easy on the accelerator, Easy on the brake.

You want to play cir 1940s Midtown Manhattan Cabbie from an old movie, that's your business. Just know,
most drivers don't play games cause the stakes of life, injury and destruction of private property are too high.

So you don't know about the snowballs at Santa Claus thing?
Of course I do and two things:

I don't live in Philly.

We aren't all philly sports fans

In the context of this thread it made no sense.

Who invited dumb and dumber
It's okay, tweedle dee and tweedle dum are probably making lots of assumptions that are wrong. Lacking basic reading comprehension will do that to them. Just look at the statement they are hung up on....1 set of brake pads. I stated that i needed new brake pads once. Anybody that passed 5th grade could extrapolate that to mean that I am on my second pair of pads. From tweedle-dee's own stat of going 80k miles on a set, the difference between 160k and 220k is not that big of a leap.

I also never said this vehicle was used for Ride-share. It has been used for many cross-country trips that covered well over 7,000 miles each. Highway miles don't wear brake pads, Cooter!

But whatevs, let them troll.
