    I have the rider app on while driving home from work. Doesn't seem to be any shortage of drivers out there at the moment.

    Question is: Is there really any business out there that would make this crap worth it...

    Has to surge. Min 3X for me to go out and drive in the snow.

    0.87 cents? hahaha NO

    If there's no surge in this snow, its all over. Too many folks out with their app on for minimal fares

    I wish no harm to anyone, but.... anyone driving in this weather for $0.87 deserves some $hit....

    I used to live in Vermont where they have 9 months of winter and 3 months of damn poor sledding.
    During the winter it snows damn near every night.
    I don't have 4 wheel drive but have no problem with snow.
    The problem I have is you people who don't know how to drive in snow.

    I stay home when it snows not because I can't drive in the snow, in fact I can. I stay home because the people in New Jersey have no idea how to drive in weather like this.

    People with 4 wheel drive in New Jersey don't seem to understand that 4 wheel drive helps you go but it don't help you stop.

    People think that they can do whatever they want with their four wheel drive. These people are the most dangerous.
    They don't understand basic physics.

    There is 4 inches of snow on the streets.
    My neighborhood turned blood red 3x for the first time today (that I have watched).
    So I turn the app on to see.
    As soon as I turn it on it goes from red to orange.
    Get a ping.
    9 minutes away 1.2x
    I turned the app off.
