    MANDATORY TIPPING in the Time of COVID-19

    Personally, I believe that UBER and LYFT should institute a mandatory 15% tip on all rides, and that money go directly to the drivers that are risking their health by being an 'essential service.' (AND I say this as someone who is NOT driving, because it is NOT worth it to me, but I'm not a...

    Dangerous ride share drivers

    In Australia there will always be a high percentage of ride share drivers who will pass a police RBT when pulled over. Many of these same drivers will, however, fail a basic drug test.
