    Attention- Accident on 395 right after the bridge going into DC. Truck lost a tire blocking the right two lanes. Use other routes to avoid stand still. Traffic is now backed up to Seminary Rd on 395. Be safe out there guys and gals.

    What’s up with traffic lately?

    So I’m curious what factors weigh in on the lack of traffic downtown over the past cpl weeks. I’m not complaining by any means but it’s been bizarre for SF to be so easy to navigate even with the giants at home, during am/pm rush, and with some major conferences (RSA, Blockchain) in town. I...

    Trulia Maps: Know Your 'Hoods (Crime & Other Data)

    There's another "surge" out there you should probably be concerned about, except this one might save your wallet and your a$$ if you don't go chasing it. In our line of work, you obviously need to know your home turf like the back of your hand, including where the dangerous neighborhoods are...

    I knew it! PAXHOLES blamed me for hillbilly stadium quagmire.

    THERE ARE TWO THINGS WRONG HERE: Problem #1: Bless your heart, Sweety, I know I how to get to the stadium. I don't control traffic or what Lyft "estimates" as my arrival time (a search here shows A YEAR of same complaints) brief summary: - PAX call me angry. "WHERE ARE YOU IT SAYS 1...

    Pax Refused to Call It Quits

    So last night I got a long trip request. I thought, "Great. I'll drive them an hour or so away, make a killing, and then be home in time to get a good night's sleep." Boy was I wrong. The pax was going from my home area in northern Delaware down to the DC suburbs. Uber said this was a 2 hour...

    Yorkdale Mall nightmare on a Saturday

    Hello Community, has anyone experienced the ZOO of having to drop off a passenger at Yorkdale Mall on a Saturday? It was about the worst congestion that I have ever seen. I would say its very close or may possibly exceed in term of delays experienced driving in downtown Toronto in rush hour. I...

    Don’t pick up at seatac peak hours on uber

    I feel like punching a wall right now. So, I ended up getting a request for the tnc garage while not even at the airport or in the queue. Hardly any cars in the queue right at the peak arrivals time. I figured, what the hey. I’ll do it. The expressway was very backed up, pretty much gridlock a...

    Pointers for how to beat the Holland tunnel traffic?

    This thread is long overdue. GPS is useless to get into Holland Tunnel. Gets the time all wrong, tries to suggest you knock over some cones, loves telling you to turn onto Canal from West St. Calling on all old-timers and NJ residents to share with us their sage advice. Thanks in advance, BF

    Uber Hypocritical over traffic, Claiming traffic expertise, but won't pay us.

    This is why I stopped driving in downtown Toronto, you are not fairly compensated for Traffice. Today I heard Uber bragging on radio how their technology can accurately monitor traffic and estimate distances it takes for people to get in the city and will be selling the data to cities. So they...

    Golden Beach Nightmare last night

    I'd determined it was my very last ride, in this case an UberEats delivery. It looked easy enough. from my pickup location in North Miami, to Golden Beach.... Easy, right? I left the restaurant just before 7pm, drove to 163rd St.... but for some whacky reason the GPS changed course and told me...
