    Government shut-down = more drivers?

    If this government shut-down drags on, I bet we’ll see a large influx of new drivers. Particularly in towns with significant government presence, eg DC. A quick internet search indicates that the number of federal employees furloughed may be as many as 800,000. If only 10% start driving...

    CA Emmissions Standards

    I've been listening to coverage about emissions standards being rolled back in California, and the focus has been on auto manufacturers. But why is no one talking about Uber / Lyft? 1. They dictate a large portion of the used car sales in the nation by the cars accepted on their platform. 2...

    TLC - A gang of lunatics

    I can understand the licensing process but what purpose do these TLC Agents serve? Honestly, I think of them as a classic example of 'Big Liberal Government'. Is there nothing better these losers can do in society? They offer no economic value or benefit. NYPD could easily perform their...

    Dishonest companies like Uber lead to crippling over-regulation

    The hidden cost of over-regulation in the U.S. is 1.8 trillion a year. Governments worldwide are increasing regulations on Uber. This is a shame. The answer is never more government but rather honest companies run by honest people. Sad.

    Circulating petitions, can Uber prevent it?

    Talking politics and religion are the best way to get a 1* rating. If I am willing to take any potential hit with my rating can Uber do anything (or even count ratings from pax with different opinions) if I ask pax to sign an petition to amend the Illinois Constitution? I agree that an...
