Snow Storm Driving Advice

1563 Views 21 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  Another Uber Driver
I drive with Lyft. With the minimal amount of snow compared to last January, things will try to remain open. I have a F150 4X4 that will be ready to drive, rubber mats, and plenty of coffee. Historically speaking, is there big money demand. Obviously it is about locality of the ping. Not worth driving 30 min to get a rider but if you are within, I call that 5 min area at 300-500 or more % its a gig. Especially if my Fed Gov job shuts down.

This snow storm seems to be one of those "it doesn't look to bad let me go out and do some work shopping etc" storms. It's where people overestimate their ability to drive because it's not 2 feet. Couple that with the fact no one has really done any winter driving this year I think the roads are gonna be full of wrecked and disabled cars. I won't be driving. Making a few hundred, if you don't get stuck yourself, isn't worth the time you'll be out of work when Johnny uber driver who's been driving for all of 2 months total wipes you out

Like I said...I wont get stuck I have a nice F150 4X4 loaded with sand. And if some idiot hits me...perfect. Just total it...for me. Because when they hit me...I am sure it will cause me to slide into the wall and damage more. Sounds like a new truck and big insurance payout for me.
Just make sure your insurance is for uber etc. Also make sure if a snow emergency is declared you know the rules and all. There's alot of myths and rumors rolling around when and where you can drive and for what reasons when those are declared and it varies state to state and policy to policy
Update by national weather service only calling for 4 to 8" in DC now. I bet it is going to be a bummer.
Those are the worst. It gives everyone a false sense of security. Hopefully you make alot of money but prepared to sit in alot of traffic jams

Down to 2 to 4 inches. Closer to the everyone should be able to drive, higher speeds, pile up levels. I'd rather take my camry out in 6+ inches than drive around with idiots with lower amounts
