Last night, I sat at a good spot on the border of West Hollywood and Hollywood for an hour starting at 10:45. I was constantly accepting and canceling pings, dozens and dozens. Requests often far from my location. And yet it never turned red in either zone the whole time (trying to remember, I can't swear to "never," but if it did surge, it wasn't big enough for me to take). A Saturday night, for god sake. THAT is way too many drivers, folks. Yes, end of night had decent surges all over, but not seeing surges most of Saturday night until closing time is ridiculous. Uber feels incredibly broken for LA drivers. P.S. Been driving 1 year & 2 months.

I did so much skipping last night and felt I was the only one who made it surge. How do the other drivers repay me? By continuing to accept non surge pings on Saturday night. I also witnessed a black guy in what I think is a X car opening the door for the two riders! This happened in Costa Mesa. I yelled out, "You open doors on Uber X?" but I don't think he heard me and didn't want to make a scene. I wish I had some time with him so I could tell him about this site. I bet he refuses tips and of course has water and mints in his vehicle.
Let me guess -- he was opening the door AND was stopped in traffic instead of pulled over. Wish it was only newbies who did that kind of crap,
