I get this feeling that they are at war against us? Does anyone else have this feeling? Am I missing something?

Unless you are doing somehing REALLY out of sorts, APD could not care less. They refused to enforce the existing ordinance while Uber was illegal. They are enforcing, for example, no parking zones. Uber drivers out by the airport who were parking in no parking zones certainly earned no favors with cops.

A friend was ticketed on 6th for impeding traffic. The cop told him they were cracking Down on Uber drivers for obvious reasons. Bring order. It's also a new revenue stream for the city. Ii wish we could get drop off zones created on 6th, 7th and Rainey.

They had a lot of cops on their side until they started the stupidity out at the airport, and downtown. There are some real bozos driving for hire now :-(

The zones are "bought". My guess is uber the company will never do that. It would be up to drivers, and you aren't the legal representatives...so catch 22

I've not had any negative issues arise from any interaction with the police sense I started driving.

1 ticket does not indicate that the cops are out to "get us"

West 6th, last night, about 1:00am. I have a pax I am trying to pick up. I try to get them on the phone during these pickups so we don't both get frustrated. I can say it's not just inexperienced Uber drivers out there impeding traffic. Last night, it was a cabbie from Lone Star Taxi sitting in park, out of his car, blocking the whole left lane. Thanks to my pax on the phone, I was able to get around this ******bag. I also got the pax to a safer spot for pick up.

APD have been lenient on us so far. 7th gets messy sometimes

For the record, I was hands free while on the phone. My car's Bluetooth feature is pretty cool.
I should probably take a couple of hours off on a weekend night just to gather video.
I also saw an obviously new uber driver on Rainey on Saturday night. How do I know he was new? Dumbbell was out of his vehicle opening doors for pax in the middle of the damn street! Some people's kids...SMH

But Uber said I should so I can get that 5 star so I look good.
