Issuing Tickets for Drop offs (be careful)

I notified this video from another thread and wanted to repost it.

You almost cannot stop anywhere to drop off / pick up.

There are sooo many Uber/lyft cars and sooo many people take ride share these days, it has become a part of the culture.

Makes me think..... Ok so WHERE should we drop off pax?? Seems like you can't stop ANYWHERE unless you pull into someone's driveway and off the streets.

This is BS. Just an excuse to issue hefty tickets. Even police officers and those damn ticket maids take Uber Im sure.

If there are no buses you are blocking or no cars coming that you are blocking traffic then we should be able to stop and drop off.

Red zone. You can't stop in red zone, even to drop off. Automatic ticket. Nothing new.

She was asking for suggestions on where we CAN drop off passengers.

She is already aware of the red zone/bus zone/taxi zone etc, and she is running out of places to drop off passengers because double parking is also becoming really common to get a ticket even for a split second.

Parking is nonexistent during daytime, and with so many cars, there are fewer and fewer curbsides to pull over.
We will get a ticket for driving/picking up/droppings off pax on bus/taxi lanes. Dropping off passengers right at red light on the curbside? Probably another ticket.

Ya they almost have to jump in and out the window while it's still rolling and there are almost no places to stop 'legally.'

How about a device where you push a button and a black cover goes over the license plate and back up. It's toooo easy now for them to just take a pic.

Hes faking it cuz he got a chick pic..but i remember he said somewhere hes a guy.

Well sure you can get a ticket...but shit listen here...you play dumb and say i didnt know..wasnt thinking bluh bluh.
Here is your best part....its 25 bucks....so would you like to get 40 tickets a months each one costing 280 bucks...or would you rather pay 25.
So many solutions but i noticed people who been in america for too long or all their lives like to pay fines and give all their money away. While imigrants will argue their case to death and if he looses it they will figure out how to be creative to avoid it next time.

What is $25?

When I get pulled over, cop comes to window to tell me what in the world I did wrong that endangered someone's life or give me a speech, I just use pepper spray to defend myself.

If they're doing this the same way they do in Hermosa Beach California,
you cannot stop the car anywhere in traffic, you cannot stop in front of a handicap Zone, you cannot stop in front of the loading zone, Hermosa Beach you can only stop your car in a normal parking space anywhere else they will run over and give you a ticket..

So what I was getting at is Uber and ride services are sooo popular and it's everywhere / becoming part of daily life, that the law should be 'customized' and loose.

If there are no buses coming or blocking and not one in sight or you are not blocking traffic, then you SHOULD be aloud to stop for up to 10 seconds and proceed, without getting or worried about getting a ticket. Taxis do it all the time.

I'm sure even the hypricate law makers take Uber and say, please drop me off right here (traffic, illegal, etc...).

We should ask pax if they work for the govt, city hall, etc... And if they do, drop them off 2 blocks away, 'ok you can get off here it's legal to stop.'

Everyone and their mother in the Bay Area are signing up to drive for Uber in SF.

Everyone and their mother are using Uber as a Pax app.

= Everyone trying to drop off/pickup someone on the already busy streets of SF.

Add this on top of pedestrians/bicyclists/tour buses/taxis/buses/traffic is the reason why I drive mostly after 8pm or very early mornings.

I imagine every big city is having the same issue

And don't get me started on those damn bicyclist that think they own the roads. Damn vegan hipsters!

They don't belong on the streets. In Holland and Denmark, bikes ride on the extended sidewalks (own lane) and off the streets where CARS belong.
