    Uber Driver Murdered: Does This Change Your Thinking About Letting Strangers Into Your Car?

    I also started doing NEMT, again. Still strangers, but far less likely to attempt murdering me, at least I hope. I had my dream ride the other day: Patient lives five minutes from my house, I pick him up and he is right next to the I-395 on-ramp in Norwich, his appointment is right off the I-95...

    Uber Connecticut is part of Uber New England. You can pick up in any New England state plus New Jersey. To pick up in Massachusetts, you must get certification from Massachusetts by passing their background check.

    Best Auto Detailers?

    Who? Where? How much? I think it's safe to say that winter is finally over. So it's time to get the car looking brand new, again.

    Pax starts crying because I wouldn't go 711

    I just say: "OK, when I drop you off at the store, I'm going to start driving around the block. If I get a request for another ride before I come around and see you in the parking lot, ready to get back in, I will end your trip so I can go pick up my next rider." If they don't agree to that, I...

    Dash Cam in Connecticut

This means all three elements have to be in play. Since there is no reasonable expectation of privacy while out in public on the street OR in your...

    New Massachusetts Background Checks Now In Effect

    I've lost count of how many times my license has been suspended, not to mention all the other multiple "no-nos" on my record. Perhaps, as long as you pass the CORI check, Mass is being more lenient after the backlash they received when they initially purged 8,000 drivers.

    New Massachusetts Background Checks Now In Effect

    You know, that was my initial concern, but after re-reading the message from Uber, I now realize that it states if you fail the CORI check, you are deactivated everywhere, not the Massachusetts check. Conceivably, one could pass the CORI check, yet fail the Mass requirements.

    New Massachusetts Background Checks Now In Effect

    Well, whudda ya know? I PASSED! Funny thing is, I didn't opt in with Uber, rather, I applied with Fasten about three or four weeks ago. I actually had all but forgotten about Fasten, but this topic had me slightly worried that Mass would run their check on me for Fasten, I would fail, then...
