In the thread, "the truth about Uber insurance" RamzFanz today posted about getting free commercial insurance from Uber in periods 2 & 3. But true commercial insurance, as I believe you have, would cover the driver himself for injury, along with his car (with a reasonable deductible, I hope) wouldn't it? Your comments here or in the thread appreciated.
Ok, here's another newbie ( possibly dumb) question. I know you recommended that new drivers be selective. Is it possible to see where people are going before you pick them up and then decide? Remember, I only started driving on Friday and did a few rides to see if I liked it, so I don't know all of the ins and outs of the system.
