I used the word tattle tale for a reason, because there are babies working for Uber. I am not enforcing any rules, not an Uber driver function. People like you need to understand that enforcing the speed limit by sitting in the left lane is not your job and is dangerous. Good luck, karma will find you eventually.

I do have an idea about weeding out the people who constantly break the rules, the ones who call the pax to find the destination and then cancel, that should not be tolerated. Fairly easy to enforce, two strikes and you're out.

There is someone who made the Uber account that the minor was using. I am assuming the parent. With that assumption, the parent assumes the responsibility, not the driver. Really, you want to tattle tale? Grow up.
Nope, anyone can setup an account. In the small print of the terms of service is where the puker fee and must be over 18 is located. If you say you agree to the terms of service, you indicate that you are 18 years old. Now what I don't know is how the Uber gift card works, without a credit card, who pays the puker fee?

Massively start using bicycles! It better affects your daily motion btw, rather than using taxi

DF doesn't work in my city at the airport. So you can bet your ass that I will call any 45+ ping at the airport. They either pay a deadhead fee or I cancel.

I'll start, under age riders.
Of the 12 rides I gave last night 4 had at kids under 6 with no car seats. So a full 30% of my rides were against Uber/Lyft TOS.. Since Uber/Lyft doesn't care neither do I. The ONLY thing I will not allow at this point is to many ppl or obvious drunks.

Unless Uber/Lyft allows me to cancel AND get a cancel fee there is no economic reason for me to refuse.

Face it, Uber/Lyft is such a shitty company that even AFTER being assaulted by a pass, the ONLY repercussion is that the pas won't be assigned to YOU again. The next driver? Fudge'em.

One way to reduce the number of drivers would be for Uber to enforce their policy regarding return trip fees. (it’s not allowed).

By the way, in my market the problem at the airport is drivers that screen for the long rides and screen out the short rides. Uber could reduce the number of drivers by enforcing their policies regarding call screening (Ie cherry picking )

Im at the airport now hoping for one of those 60 min plus rides. Last week I got one (an XL), dropped my rider and got an immediate XL back.at a 1.5 surge The best thing is not this one good day, the best thing is that I gave my card to both customers and now one has become a regular customer

Let's face it there is over saturation in most markets. Let's work together to get more drivers off the road. List your tips for eliminating your competition in your area.
I'll start, under age riders. Yesterday, 3 kids got in my car heading to a High School, my first question. Is everyone over 18? Response, NO, sorry it is illegal for you to be in my car. Response, an Uber driver took us here. Next I pulled over, called support, saw pax request another uber, declined went offline. Customer support, I want to report illegal activity, pax were informed that they can't take Uber as they are underage. They just got in another drivers car, they are breaking the law. You must deactivate that driver. The location is a high school, if there are 2000 people there, 1500 are underage. Why doesn't Uber screen for age at a high school pickup and dropoff. Put the liability on Uber, Pax, and new driver. You must deactivate the driver, you know who they are because they just picked up the pax that I called you about. Uber, you are breaking the law right now, you are engaged in illegal activity, what are you going to do. I have informed you of your illegal activities and you have knowledge of this event, all on a recorded line.

The CSR will stutter and send you to critical response team. You will speak with another CSR. Empathetic and acknowledge illegal activity and thank you for your call. 1 less driver on the road.
If foober followed rules and laws they wouldn’t be as big as they are. They count on the next driver to pick up any and all other rejects ejections and cancels. What do you think happened to the many people I have kicked out of the car. They got another car.
My list
In person interview
Driving test
English proficiency
Cap hires in a given county city state
Raise the car age

It's not about Uber's TOS. It's about the tickets YOU risked getting.

To cut down on drivers would require nothing on Uber's part. They'd literally have to do LESS.

JUST STOP ONBOARDING.

This is what companies normally do when they have more than enough workers (employees or contractors). They stop hiring people.

They don't need to "get rid" of anyone. Just stop ADDING them. In a few months half will be gone anyway.

The government can controller the number of drivers on the road . They've done it in New York by freezing licensing for a whole year.

But you should care due to risk of insurance not paying for an accident. You, when in violation of
Uber or Lyft TOS, are not covered by the insurance, if you get t-boned or rear-ended. If
Pax sustain injuries, you risk big-time potential financial hit in lawsuit settlements, when insurance
won't cover it.
