    Hydroplaning Is real!

    Tonight I saw at least 7 accidents. Most of them on I-95 near PHL. Be safe out there. Fact: hydroplaning can occur when driving at 35 MPH or faster.

    Boston Rain

    So, I decided awhile ago that it was no longer a good idea to drive when it rains because the risk/reward no longer makes sense. I have little doubt that Uber supresses the surge during weather events due to some public ignorance that occurred during storms last winter. It takes much longer to...

    Waymo Plans For Autonomous Car Launch Leaked

    When they do their 2018 public release in Arizona (which will be about 100 square miles centered around the Phoenix area), the cars will be driverless without operators. They made it pretty clear that the only humans in the car will be the riders who hail the Waymo. As of this point, the focus...

    Welp, it's raining. Good for business but...

    Where the hell are these idiot PAX standing? Do they not use sidewalks anymore? I feel like every PAX is coming home from a tough mudder event... ...and then you have to wonder, how many idiot pax are going to leave 'cleanliness' complaints after the PAX before them f-d up the car.

    PSA: Driving In The Rain

    This message isn't so much for the regular Deplorables on this board, but for the lurking White Earpiece Brigade member reading this while dropping a deuce in the urinal somewhere: *clears throat* IF YOU CAN'T DRIVE IN THE ***ING RAIN GET OFF THE GODDAMN ROAD!!!!!! YOU'RE A ****ING HAZARD...

    Rain

    When no one is home and there isn't a spot with a roof to leave the package, which is more important: Dry packages? Or your success rate? Toady I chose the latter when I saw a UPS package was already sitting there soaked.

    Rainy weather = 0 for 8 on tips for the night

    Since I took yesterday off, this was my welcome to 2018. . 0 tips on 8 deliveries tonight. Hasn't happened to me in awhile. And, it was nasty weather in South Florida tonight. Well, I'll remember all of you. Next time it's raining your food is gonna be soggy and my delivery bag will stay in...

    Thaw, thaw, snow, snow, thaw...

    Anyone got any ideas on keeping the outside of the car as clean and tidy as possible during the thaw-freeze cycles we get here in London??? A daily wash may help - but it's also going to get very expensive, very quickly!

    Press the "Auto" button

    I'm seeing and always see these clueless drivers driving around with dangerously fogged up windows because they don't know how to use the climate control system. All you have to do is set the temperature to 68° or 72° and press AUTO. The system will take care of your fogged up windows and...

    Once Upon a Time, Rain Meant Surge

    Many moons ago, in the Pre-Trumpapocalypse era, (aka March 2016), as the ancient drivers used to tell us, that rain meant surge all over, so powerful! So red! So many Pax paying 3.2x or so... Happy drivers would reap the many dollars on those glorious days But now, no more surge when it...

    Dang that rain surge

    Surge in DC went up to like 5x and looks to be staying that for now due to like flash flood rain which has eased up completely right now. I typically go under the rule of "don't chase surge" but dang, should I be kicking myself for not being in there right now?
