    Would You Like to Take a Survey?

    Just to satisfy my curiosity (and quite possibly yours as well). Now for those that answer that you are busier than before, state whether or not you are currently driving under the 20% or the 25% commission rate. Have fun. Also this is just for the LA/OC drivers in general.
