rider surge manipulation has become prevalent in recent weeks. the rider knows that the surge lasts about 10 min. so they have told me that they wait it out. i expect it to surge when there is high demand (1:45 to 2:20 am). i stay on rider app till it surges. if it surges i go online, if surge ends and i still see people hanging out in front of bars i go offline. rider surge manipulation is unacceptable. at least in my car it is.
