That could have been me.

So I am on my way home at 8 pm after a few excellent Juno rides at 100% surge in this rainstorm. I am on the LIE right past the woodhaven exit and the traffic is stop and go. I am in the far left lane. Ahead of me is a blue dodge dart. Ahead of it is a white C class. Ahead of that car is a white GLE benz. Behind me is a truck with a flatbed. Everything is going ok even though it is pouring heavily. For some strange reason I move into the middle lane. 20 seconds later in the left lane, there are sudden brake lights. The GLE stops. The c class and dart also stop in time but maybe somewhat abruptly. The flatbed who is now behind the dart cant stop in time. It hits the dart who hits the c class. The GLE is fine because it started moving again. I see this all unfold clearly. I stop for a second contemplating staying around as a witness but the rain was so real and I'm tired so I go home. That could have been me. Damn, rain + night = disaster. These apps don't pay us enough to risk driving in those conditions even with the surge. Stay safe guys. Just go home. It's not worth it.

This kinda bull crap always happens in the left lane. So many times i almost rear ended someone cause they stopped suddenly. I'll tell you why because in the left lane everyone is going like 20 over and leave no distance between them and the guy in front. Thats why this shit constantly happens. I stay out of the left lane unless im passing.

i dont understand why anyone uses the outer lanes in a rain storm. i will only ever do it when middle lane is under 35 mph since thats pretty much the max speed you can safely do in those lanes in a rainstorm

Exact my thoughts, yesterday was a surprisingly good day, i was lucky even without surge. While I was waiting to pick up my wife , all the apps gone crazy surge. I said forget it, maybe 1 good short ride but that will be probably it. Doesn't worth and no need to be greedy since I already made relatively enough. Picked wife, went home, no regret.

Yep. I was at $450 over 12 hours and it was only 8 pm. So I was like maybe I'll just go until the rain surge ends but I am glad I decided against it and just went home.
