Uber tends to place the pin at the rear entrance of most addresses. Savvy riders place the pin advantageously. Autofill by GPS pins the nearest roadway (not necessarily an entrance or exit). Personally I think the pin should be assigned to a person and not a place. The person and the device are the pin. Track the device by GPS. That way if you go to the pin, you go to the rider. Every time. Thanks for your upvote.
All you clever drivers, any ideas on how to make the connection/pickup process smoother or more foolproof?

Video te ego audiam vos ego sentio tibi - Cat herder - Uber/Lyft 3000 rides
I have been a ride share driver for over two years. I have been suspended from Lyft once for "safety" (unknown details) and twice from Uber for "intoxication" (absolute lie - I don't drink). While I like the ride share concept, I truly hate it's implementation and the way Uber and Lyft have so little regard for their work force. I am for the little guy. I seek to right injustice and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Please enjoy my opinion and if you like (or even if you just welcome the effort), an upvote is a digital pat on the back and is most appreciated. Thanks
