There is always a risk but if you stay aware you should be just fine. Make sure someone knows you are taking an Uber. Ensure you are getting in the right car by checking the license plate, car make and model, and drivers name. Carry pepperspray or something to protect yourself with. If the drivers seems off, trust your gut and order another car.
I try to avoid rough parts of town and I only driver during the day time. I always make sure someone knows I am driving and I keep them updated. If I have a rider I am uncomfortable with I call my husband, he knows to pick up when I am driving. I don't need to say anything for him to know why I am calling. I know this might be rude for the rider but its my safety!
haha great list so far!! I think you have pretty much covered all the main ones. I would add being late for pickup. It is amazing how many passengers are not ready when I arrive, you literally have an app telling you exactly when I will arrive!! How hard could it be to get your butt outside?!
Haha this looks pretty fun. You joining?
oh this is just devastating. I am curious to learn more details of the shooting, if it was just random or targeted.
I have actually never transported anything without a pax, is that normal behavior?
sand gets me everytime 😫
Ya a lot of these make sense, intoxication level, number of pax, general apppearance. The one driver who mentioned smell though cracked me up, I mean ya I will notice smell but it is not the first thing i notice. He must have some smelly passenger haha
60 minute trip - sweet! What was your take home?
I think in some of these situations I would call the police. I wouldn't want to risk getting in trouble or in the middle of anything but I would want to verfiy that the child was ok.
I think the OP was referring to this specific article which involved only women but you are right. It is more prevalent among male passengers but sadly they do not end up in danger as frequently as women so it is not reported.
Wow I am impressed! Especially coming from a mom of 4 :) Kids are a clean cars worst nightmare LOL
I also love that lysol spray, makes things so easy but sometimes I wonder how well it actually works...
Do you think lysol wipes are more effective than the spray? Just so much easier to spray and go!
and I am super impressed with how often you vacuum your car, I hate getting out my little vacuum and doing this!! Do you have a vacuum you love?
Yep, I agree with Momof4. I take Uber day by day, if it even gets terribly out of hand, then sure I'll look for making extra income elsewhere.
I would not have stressed about providing snacks and waters and making everything perfect. I realized after a while that all that stuff really doesn't matter. I wish I hadn't wasted my time on it all in the beginning.
I'm In! Gonna spend my day catching up on my netflix shows :)
The more of us that strike the more effective it will be! I plan on striking today at 10am. Still in my PJS :)
Your welcome! Good luck!
I would keep my app on for a week and see just how many pings I get between 10-2. If it is very few then I would just decide to do something else with that time. Go home, sleep, relax, do chores, etc. If there is still an ok number of pings, enough to make it worth it then I would probably sit in the most high traffic area and wait!
I think its unprofessional. I always ask Pax what they would like to listen to. If they request something, they get it. If they don't care, I put on news or one of those pop stations.
Here is what you need to pass!
