Yeah, there's always someone who thinks it's worth it to start and stop your car for $4.
The stupid thing is it would be nice if they just friggin showed us where the trip is going. They show everyone the pickup address why can't they just show the drop off when we accept.

I don't know why they need to hide the address regardless of what level we have unlocked. I'm only just pro so I can only see the time and direction. I've had to decline lots of shorties.

I think trip radar is meant to be a tool to attract drivers to a certain area. When the system detects a high volume of requests coming out of a certain area, it triggers trip radar. Uber knows it's not likely that any drivers who aren't in that immediate area will take the request, but hopes that more will start heading that way in hopes of picking up more lucrative offers.
No it’s not. It’s a ride fulfillment tool because the original driver it was offered to declined it. “surge rates” are used to attract drivers to a particular area.

The good news is you don’t have to do it.
