I don't think they will be gone. They are, in one form or another, here to stay. Don't worry!
Your acceptance rate is 3%? How is it that low? I heard they don't enforce that or penalize for having a low acceptance rate, but that seems like a lot of saying "no."
No judgement. Just curious. Why so picky? In fact, a better question may be, isn't that a lot of hassle to be declining all those trips all day long?
Do you make people sign release forms when you post these? I don't know the legality of it (I mean it is your car), but I am curious.
There were a few recent threads where this was argued.
Inside the secret Facebook of Uber drivers posting passenger photos without consent
Why did my Uber driver take pictures of my girlfriend puking?
Thank you for the response. Yes, I understand that drivers have rights to record their space. I was curious if there was a way to request not to be recorded, but I guess that would defeat the purpose. If that were the case, all crooks will ask that the camera be turned off before attacking and/or robbing the driver, huh?
Anonymousity is pretty much gone riding a taxi, but I do consider that as a good thing, not a bad thing. I am not doing anything, say like cheating on a wife, and I suppose for one I shouldn't worry that my trips are being documented and for two that I am being recorded.
I wonder what celebrities do.
To be honest, I have regularly seen UberX drivers engaged on playing smartphone games. Now, I haven't run into anyone who is playing while the car is moving, but they do at red lights. They try to be non-discrete about it, but it's pretty darn obvious from the back.
I assume smartphone games is pretty darn popular amongst Uber drivers. I mean, they have to be doing something between fares on the road, right?
