    Driving related injuries

    Driving for Uber (and Lyft) can cause long term health injuries, some that you might not think of. We think of diet, circulation, and that sort of thing, but there are other serious issues that drivers need to be aware of, and perhaps take care to avoid causing themselves permanent damage...

    Why Aren't Vancouver Drivers driving More EVs?

    With the high cost of gas, and the low cost of electricity, and a generous Provincial AND Federal subsidy (that stack), It's kind of baffling that CTVnews has an article like this one: https://bc.ctvnews.ca/most-b-c-drivers-have-misconceptions-about-charging-electric-vehicles-report-1.4619160

    The best thing that could have happened

    The one time I try to put in a day shift, a minnesota decides to smooch my prius. The idea that day driving is safer is bullshit. Sober day drivers aren't that much better than night time drunk drivers, but there are so many more of them trying to give you a bad day. I handle the crash, call...

    Car vs food.

    Went to a Japanese place for a double order and the lady very nicely told me to be more careful with sushi stuff and brought out the order I had just delivered a couple of minutes ago. It looked like someone took the food and shook it very rigorously. I'm thinking the food couldn't handle my...

    I've been driving down here in Orlando for about two weeks, and still can't seem to shake that overwhelmed feeling! I'm sitting in the visitors parking lot at UCF, and have now been on the road for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, and have not even gotten a call, yet, from UBER or LYFT! My...

    Uber has MOVED the Multi-City Driving Map for Drivers of CT!

    I know I am new to this forum. I thank the creators for this opportunity to vent my frustration out and to find out HOW I can keep track when Uber makes changes to my livelihood, and my ability to make money. I am not always up on what Uber does, wants, can and cannot do. Basically, I want to...
