• Uber driver. Is it worth doing?

    I'm considering driving for Uber on my spare time. Is it worth it? Do you actually make money after gas expenses and the wear and tear on your vehicle? Have you had many bad experiences with riders that were jerks? Please include how often you do it and the general area you do it in. I'm in northeast PA.

    I was driving about 50mph in a 30mph at 3am and police drove past me on the other side of the road. I saw them brake & do a U-turn and I quickly turned onto another road and again onto another road. Checked my mirrors and think I lost them. After dropping my friend (5 mins after passing the police) one ent home - overtook a car in a 20mph zone at about 50mph at 3am (roads was empty) and then I saw blue lights in my mirror and they pulled me over. Police officer said they saw me speed past them before and got my reg number and came to my address but my car wasn't there as they thought I was on my way home. They went on about why I was in such a rush and then they asked to see my licence. He asked if I had any points, I said no and he said he thinks that's gonna change. So he went back to the police car. I acted very sorry and said sorry to them for speeding He then came and said they've put a warning on my name and vehicle section 59 of anti social driving. If I ever do this again they will seize my vehicle. I said sorry to them again and asked if I'm getting points today and they said this is a warning and next time they will seize the vehicle if it happens again. My question is: 1) how did they get my number plate & speed if they was on the other side of the road? 2) why wasn't I given any points? Does the warning under anti social driving section 59 work differently with normal speeding? 3) what would have happened if they didn't find me but saw me speeding earlier?

  • Do women drive less than men?

    Best answer: It's an average. So, for example, there are more stay at home women than there are men. There are also a lot more men in industries that require a lot of driving, such as taxi's, buses, travelling salespeople and so on.

  • How do you react when a driver cuts you off in your lane just so they can get into a turning lane?

    I hate when drivers do this, get into the lane you need to get into with heavy traffic ahead of time so you don't have to cut off drivers and potentially cause accidents. This means if you know you're making a left hand turn 5 minutes up the road, you should get into that lane as soon as there is an opening... show more

  • Considering reducing to a 1 car family. Alternatives to replace that 2nd car? Uber. Lyft, ZipCar, etc.?

    When our 2nd car eventually dies or gets wrecked, rather than buying another car to replace it, and having to make payments again and insure it, I m considering using alternatives to get around. I ve used Uber and it s fine to get one place or another. There s an app called Transit that will compare local transit routes and Uber. There s ZipCar where you can rent cars by the hour for when you need a car for an hour or two to go to the store, etc. I figure using these would wind up being significantly cheaper than car payments, insurance, gas, etc. Are there any other apps or services to consider? I live in the San Jose, CA area.

  • Why is there no drive thru in Netherlands/Europe?

    Best answer: Land is expensive, so unlike the USA, which is huge, we don't have the room for many of them. There are some - I have a drive thru KFC near me, however, it is usually quicker to order in store.

    Hi all, I have a big dilemma have around 5-6.5k saved up to spend on a car that I am planning purchasing in March. I am looking for something that will last me 5+ years and be reliable. I am 20 year old female and currently drive a Fiat Grande Punto from 2006 with 1.2 engine. I am currently paying around 1-1.2k a year to insure that car. My question is what would you recommend me to buy? I have two options that I was considering: Set Ibiza Tsi 1.2 2013-2015 with around 30-50k miles on the clock or BMW 1 series 1.6 l 2009-2010 with 45-55k miles on the clock. Which option would be more reliable long term and generally cheaper long term?As said I am looking for something that will last me and won’t be having many issues. Many Thanks,
