Here's the problem with non-locals working in areas they aren't familiar with: YOU ARE SCREWING IT UP FOR EVERYONE ELSE.

On Fourth of July weekend, I saw 7 Ubers being ticketed. Of those seven Ubers, five had TLC plates. At least three of them were getting ticketed for blocking traffic and unsafe pickups.

It's not just a question of profits. It's a question of making it harder to do our jobs when it's already unregulated here.

So how is one supposed to get experience? Uber is sending out $40/hour welfare incentives...of course all of these people are going to show up and not know how to pickup/dropoff pax. Uber is the Wild Wild West. Your competition just needs to have a car, license and reg and a clean record and they can drive too. You might have thousands of trips but that doesn't mean squat. You're in competition with every other driver with the app turned on. If you want to separate yourself from the rest then you need to drive XL, Black or SUV but that requires spending $$$$ on a new ride. Some markets have something called Uber Select which are top rated drivers and nicer cars. My car and rating would qualify for that but the service is not in my area.
Work a guarantee, fine. But when people from outside the area come in, that's an issue both on Uber's part and the drivers.

The easiest solution is to have a universal rate with Philly and NJ, but have the surge looser on the shore.
