    Tickets for bike lane blocking

    These are the same bike lanes that bicyclists never use. Also note the "officers can take pics of your tags and send tickets via mail if you move once they roll up on you" part I'm glad I'm going back into retirement again https://wtop.com/dc/2019/11/dc-cracking-down-on-bike-lane-blockers/

    Another episode of "The Life of an Uber Driver"

    "An Uber passenger who got into a physical altercation with another rider was struck and killed by a highway patrol car after jumping from the Uber and running across a highway." I'm just curious how many stars were dolled out at the end? https://abcn.ws/2BskXgp

    Might come out of retirement

    Just for this weekend. I know it's the worst of the worst times but day job slowed down a little too much. And this is what the best part of driving for uber is. There, if and when you need to make some side money. Theres no national bike day this weekend or anything is there?

    How you know its getting worse and worse

    I've been in the forum for long enough that I just realized we havent had a "its was great out there today/yesterday" thread in quite some time. That tiny island when red lit up the map and the lucky people that could drive or would drive and dish out totals for the day.

    Constant Uber emails

It's been "heres why gold is good for you" ones. I have a pretty good feeling drivers are realizing...

    I believe I have figured out "you're in a busy area"

    Scheduled trips. I have been generally in a non busy, rural area and gotten a scheduled trip on almost all of them. Most of the time nothing. I think this is Uber's way of keeping someone in the area to take the upcoming scheduled trip

    Bike lanes

    https://wtop.com/dc-transit/2019/03/i-66-toll-lane-bike-trail-layout-comes-into-focus/slide/1/ Who wants to bet they end up in traffic on 66 and then blame the driver when they get hit? Because its super rare around here for bicyclists to actually be in bike lanes and not literally be playing...
