    picked up a Lyft pax in good neighborhood at 11pm, but the destination was in bad hood. Pax was fine. Dropped her off and turned off Lyft as I didn’t want to pickup from the hood. In my return route, in one of the one lane dark back roads a car tailgated me and started high beam flashing and horn. I was scared to death literally. Put the gear on sport mode, turned on warning lights, and pushed my horn continuously, and ran with max speed toward campus area which I knew is full of cops. The ******* gave up after couple miles fortunately. I think he wanted to rob me ...

  3. There is no reason to refuse.

    Now . . . guy behind you probably wondered why you were driving so slow.
    He wanted to GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE !

    Just be Respectful and you will have no problems.

    I was driving 10 mph above speed limit, in a deer loaded area, at 11:30 pm

  5. Reminds me of this car i bought dirt cheap from a crack head
    $500.00 nice little ride.
    Worth 5 times that.

    People ALL over town tried to wave that car down !
    They were wondering why it didnt stop.

    Yep. Too many slow moving ants.
    Move it, beat it, step on it!
     
  7. I rather doubt that.
     
  8. They even had 1 Genius.
    Bought crack from an undercover.
    He managed to escape from police that instantly tried to bust him.
    Went back to exact same cop and tried to buy AGAIN !
    Serious.
     
  9. Some people can't afford to live in nice areas so just take them home and turn off uber on your way out. End of story.

    Again, 11:30 pm, 10 mph above the limit, in area full of deer herds. No I wasn’t slow

    You don’t know how ****ty is that area ... (Trenton).
    I’m seriously looking for a way to refuse rides toward that hood.

    Wear a gangster cap, and put anti trump sticker in the back of the car...
    After getting to the good neighborhood, remove the sticker and the cap.
    Or put Obama 08 sticker in the back of the car .

    Another evening, in my noobie period, I picked up a cracked tall white guy
    the dears were scared by my continus horn! Could’ve jumped in front of me!

    Another evening, in my noobie period, I picked up a cracked tall white guy who was heading to that hood. He put two stops. In his first stop he went to liquor store, but returned with a black small bag smelling obviously like drug. In next stop he went to meet with his FRIEND (you know what is that), and asked me to wait 5 minutes. I ran away as soon as he left ...

  15. When you see the drop address, cancel the ride and tell the pax you have a sudden family emergency, that you can't take them.

    Leave it for someone with some sack.

    Sounds like a legit excuse - will use it next time
     
  17. So the guy was trying to tell you that your lights are not turned on and you ran like a pansy?

    I motion to people every night to turn on their headlights. Only about 10% actually get the message. One time, a pickup truck behind me had no lights on. I had no one in my car. I was trying to motion to him with my flashlight and turning my lights on and on. Didn't get the message for a while.

    Eh I've also had a few sketch things happen driving at night but on the bright side with adrenalin you won't need caffeine for a while. That won't be your last scary experience.

    If the app is off you're on your own insurance. If the app is on you're on Uber's insurance, you know for the bullet holes and stuff; and the life insurance if you are signed up with it.

    I drive anyone anywhere. I used to turn the app off and go to where I felt more comfortable when I was new and didn't know certain areas but now I feel fine and safe. :)
    Uber on...

    Not really- my lights are automatic. It switches automatically between low and high beam depending on if there is a car in front. Plus, he was tailgating seriously close distance, and did the whole thing for about 5 minutes non stop
