    For those who look down upon $3-4 trips...

    The only issue I have with the smaller dollar rides, is this: In my area, Uber has a way of locking you into staying in an area, and running your vehicle to the ground, while offering such a low dollar amount; Another thing that Uber does, is that they will send you 7 miles or more, for a ride...

If a driver is offended by the music, or whatever the Pax is listening to, ask them to either turn it down or to use earbuds or some other listening device that would allow...
