Today I had a pax who got in my car and said if I got him to his destination in under 10 minutes (estimated time was 13 minutes), he would give me a $10 tip. Did I speed, you bet, and now I am $10 richer

    If passenger asked I would do it without the tip. Of course I wouldnt tell them that if they offered a tip. I get frustrated doing 55 on a major highway but of course with passenger in car I dont have much of a choice usually cruise at 60. Happy to do 65/70 if asked.

    On smaller roads 25/40 mph I may go over speed limit but only if I know the area. Major highway 50/70 mph. Of course.  Nothing wrong with going over speed limit as long as traffic isnt heavy and you are not driving carelessly.

    Depends on the situation. No one likes the reckless driver zipping around people in traffic, but if you're still driving safely and within reason... well... sure :)

    It depends, is the customer nice or being a jerk? sometimes when jerks say this I will drive slow just to piss them off

    The other day I had a pax tip me $5 and then say he was going to tip me again in the app. He never did. Why even say that, you already gave me a decent tip, just leave it at that.

      I hate when passengers say they will tip in the app, they never do.

      Yes, this is such a pet peeve of mine. passengers jsut feel like they have to say that I think but c'mon they know they never will. As soon as they leave the car they figure "eh, ill never see that guy again. might as well save a few bucks".

    I'd go 10mph over no problem for a decent tip.  I am talking like 50% tip though.

    Haven't you guys all heard of private drivers who drive for super rich people? and how they are told to speed, break rules, and everything, because all the expenses, legal fees, and tickets are worth it to important people.  They are willing to pay for those because their time is worth lots of money.

      In fact, I have, but that's an urban legend, dude.

      Why would you be that driver?  You get fired and the records stick with you.

      Unless you are driving a district attorney or senator or something who can wipe that kind of stuff off.

          I am finding great humor in how you guys are trying NOT to say "uber rich" not to confuse the readers that here, "uber" means something else.

    what i would like to do is stop car, end the ride and kick the passenger to the curb; instead i say, "no".

    Do passengers really do this? I have never dreamt of dangling money in front of a driver to make them speed.
