I heard they are trying to crack down on it.
I did see this thread as an example of how they are starting to deactivate drivers and stopped paying cleaning fees. How are they catching these drivers and settling the disputes?
Banned from charging Uber cleaning fee?
What is the "cleaning fees" and "vomit" SCAM by Uber drivers? Should I be concerned? How do I avoid them?
I saw this excellent question on Quora, but there doesn't seem to be many answers there. I decided to post it here because I am very interested in what the drivers have to say.
No, I am not an Uber or Lyft driver currently. (Full disclosure: My husband signed up and drove once, just once, on a friend's dare. Hahaha)
I'm curious driving full time for Uber actually works. I'd love to hear your experience. Can you really make a living with it as a primary job?
I'm just curious what drivers think about this, and if making out in the backseat of an Uber would make my passenger rating go down. Nothing crazy happening but I'm just curious what people's opinions are on this.

The drivers argue that Uber’s business model enriches company executives at the expense of its low-paid drivers, who are contractors, and not full-time employees with benefits (this issue is at the heart of several lawsuits that seek to get drivers classified as employees). Uber offers incentives ...
Drove Saturday night in Philly & Lower Bucks. Rain was relentless, flooding everywhere, visibility awful. After seeing my 8th accident on I-95 this one involving 4 cars that firemen were extracting the injured or possibly dead with the jaws of life & power tools I decided I was done for the night. I took one last quick bar pick up that was 7 min ride. I stopped at local WaWa where I know the night shift employees. Mike was on phone & yelled for me when I got in. "Can you take this guy home he dont have phone & ...
He weighed an easy four hundred pounds. More weekday afternoons than not, he'd pull a chair up to one of the video slot machines, order a Diet Coke, and while away hours seeking that big score.
There was a lock box under the bar with a couple hundred dollars and a scrap of paper to record payouts. We were instructed to only pay the people we knew, all others would be told that the machines were “For Amusement Only”.
Periodically there would be word that a bar down the street had been raided and shut down, so there was always ...
