Do You Believe this New Uber Feature impedes on your 1st Amendment Rights?

If you're getting paid black rates, why not just shut up and let them do what they prefer? That's what you're getting paid to do, right?

Hmmm I don't know dude....

I guess for those that are ok with it then .....

Makes me more Green. I'm all for it.

It's stupid and a bit offensive, but not a 1st Amendment issue, just like forum rules prohibiting certain things are not a 1st Amendment issue.

Many of us can figure it out easily enough if a customer wants to talk or not.

Otherwise, just let us know.
It's insulting to the driver to even suggest it. My riders are free to ask for quiet. And I will oblige, not because of a requirement, but because I am an adult.

No where does it say that!

"Lighten up, Francis"...!
Right, apparently the three options are:
"quiet preferred"
"happy to chat"
"no preference"

Might help drivers who are too thick to realize when somebody has their earphones in or their face buried in their phone that they don't want to be bothered.

Or not.

If I drove Black, I might be a bit more concerned about
There's also the chance to extend the pickup period by up to 15 minutes at no extra cost should you need a little longer to get ready.
How's that gonna work?

As long as it is upfront and the Uber Quite Mode is included in the ping notification then I am fine with it. That way a driver chooses (or not) to accept that condition as part of the ride and makes their own free choice.

If it is not upfront then of course that can lead to problems. The key is always give the driver the information upfront to understand what he/she is accepting. If total disclosure were done upfront across the board their would be a lot less complaints in general. U/L should get out of the mentality that they can hide information from you and then "spring it on you".

It isn't in the Ping. You don't see the Preferences until you go to Start Trip.
