    Monday Rush was not your typical start of the workweek Crush

    First time in weeks I didn't get a premium run before 6 am on a Monday. In fact, I've gotten so proficient at it, I even have lists of Consultants who request every monday at the same times: 5:15, 5:30, & 5:45. This way, once I get back to DT after dropping my regular off, I know exactly...

    Long trip dissapointment

    I should have known better and not have wasted my time on an out of state trip. Basically there is not compensation for doing this and drivers pretty much get paid less than the actual mileage of the trip. Never again! I would have scored better by just driving in the city.

    Here's another beauty!

    Lot of action in this pic. This isn't the last one to come. When turning right into the pit, there's a brief blind spot to where you can't see northbound Drivers with a Green light traveling 30+ into the pit. I think the declivity from the top of this intersection and the Rosemont exhibition...

    UP needs to separate spots fo burbs and city in Chicagoland.

    I've been doing this on and off for four years. I put in many hours trying to herd cats and organize drivers. The current Chicago ordinance would have been much worse without us. The fact remains that Chicago is two markets. There are city drivers wanting to avoid the suburbs and suburban...

    Side by Side Comparison between the ever worsening Uber and Coast so Far Clear Lyft

    First off, my system is my system. It's what works for me. For the most part, it's opposite the mainstream. I use 5 of my 6 DFs during the highly concentrated AM rush. On good days, I get multi trips per DF. Perhaps this simple analysis wouldn't match cucumber to cucumber with your...

    Skyline!

    Sometimes I want to ask out of town passengers to come up front to see the great view of the most magnificent skyline. For me this is often coming from the north side and the Westin wall is the least interesting of the approaches. (I always watch for the ascending vapor in winter months.) I...

    Chicago brainiacs

    There is a lot of intention behind city planning. Knowing the rules and constants helps me as a driver. Here's one just out of curiosity. Why are streets on the south side generally referred to by number (72nd Street, 72nd Place), while on the north side, chiefly by name (Touhy Ave, Chase Ave)?

    LSD speeding tickets

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-biz-lake-shore-drive-speeding-20180822-story.html Looks like they are targeting only the fastest and most dangerous drivers, but still amazing how many there are.
