How serious are warnings for cancelling too many trips?

    I've gotten a couple emails now, but it's pretty frustrating because cancelling usually isn't my fault. Usually the rider is taking forever and waisting my time or i can't f'n find them because they put the wrong location.

    Another time I accepted a request, was driving to the rider, some idiot driver cut me off so I honked at him. Stuck in traffic in Santa Monica, he gets out all pissed off and throws his coffee at my windshield. I had to cancel and go get a car wash to even continue driving.

    Other times, riders keep cancelling once I accept their ride, does that count toward our cancellations too??

    Uber sucks ass.

    I've been getting those emails/text weekly because I am selective. I don't drive more than 8 minutes away. I cancel if I have to make a u-turn and go away from an area I am trying to get to. I cancel if I see it is part of town that can be dangerous and or difficult to drive in, etc.

    Drivers have reported being deactivated for too may cancels. PAX cancels don't count. I try to stay under 10%. Try to make PAX cancel.

    Serious. Very serious.

    I would think they would start calling wanting to know why.

    Can you drive for Uber in Los Angeles if you had a DUI just 7 years ago?

    Not really. Late at night in residential areas, I usually sent a text asking to confirm destination. Most think it comes from uber. I do it because sometimes I will not want to drive out of state past 12 AM.

    Uber has de-activated for high rates of cancellation. To read these Boards, here seems to be no consistency to how they enforce the policy.

    Depends on how many tens if thousands of new drivers Uber recruited that day.
    The " ALGORITHM" decides !

    Per uber's email, if you cancel, its counts as part of your cancellation rate. If pax cancel's, it does not count as part of your cancellation rate.

    But the system generated uber deactivation email is generated based on BOTH driver and rider cancellations.

    Here is a guy who was deactivated but his cancellation rate was outrageous. Appropriate his avatar says you can't fix stupid...

    https://uberpeople.net/threads/uber-deactivated-my-account.116706/

    As mentioned, try to get riders to cancel instead and if the address is right down the block from a pin, save a cancellation here and there. They start to drop of after 50 rides (in my market anyway) so keeping it under 10-15% shouldn't be difficult.
