Our driver group are asked all the time by passengers about whether they should drive ride share and what we think of it. We are straight with them about the reality of driver compensation, the increase in bad passenger behavior and the dangers of driving in crime ridden neighborhoods. We encourage these passengers / potential drivers to come on this site and read and get an education about the reality of this gig from drivers around the country and the world. We decided to take things one step further and made up a little business card with the uberpeople web site address and a follow up e-mail to our driver group. We hand them out to passengers and recommend that they get a balanced perspective of ride share and a reality check on what they are hearing from Uber and Lyft. We are happy to report that we heard back from 11 new drivers this week who went to the UP site, read posts and decided that they did not want to drive, based on what they read. Only, one new driver said that he would move forward with trying driving after reading this site. But, even he had reservations about his personal safety once he read the NJ section of UP. We are happy to hear feedback and suggestions from other drivers on our little reality check strategy.
