Ok let me start off by saying I definitely let my guard down and went against my better judgement and received a ticket NJ 39:4-56 "Delaying Traffic" while picking up a Pax in front of the Osprey in Manasquan. Here's what happened. I have a great rating. I'm in the top 10% after way over 1000 rides. I was driving on the weekends in Belmar, Manasquan, and the Point doing Club Pax. As much as I want to staying away from the Parker house, Manasquan etc Everytime I got a long ride from one end of the shore to the other you pass through these towns and unless you turn off your app you get a ping at one of these places. So I go. Knowing all the issues with police I was requesting riders meet me 2 blocks away or behind their bar location in a parking lot and their crying about it. I was trying to park legally but even 2 blocks away there are no legal parking spots. Then I start to watch my ratings go down. Then I make a decision to hide my phone, request they sit in the front seat and try to pickup a little closer. I was there literally 2 seconds, I did not park, I was merely trying to pick up a Pax and bingo a cop walks over and I get a $54 ticket. I know it's only $54 but it's not like Im making more than a minimum wage and why should I have to pay when the Uber app is negligent for allowing a request to go through when there is no legal way place to park anywhere near these places. If I cancel they deactivate me. If I ask the pax to meet me 2 blocks away they rate me low and I get deactivate me. This is why Uber Drivers hate Uber. They are not Fair to drivers. I fully explained this parking situation to Uber and here is what they email me: "I’m really sorry to hear about the citation. Because our partners are independent contractors, we cannot assist with the payment or fees associated with a moving, parking, or similar violations." Am I doing something wrong? Should Uber pay my Ticket?
