aving weapons in the vehicle is against TOS. However, protect yourself. Don't drive at night, carry some sort of personal protection (pepper spray, pocket knife) and you'll be okay. Also invest in a good dash cam

Guendelsberger found she made more money by ignoring the recommended times and locations where demand for rides was likely to be high.


These are areas like popular morning commute routes, busy Saturday night bars and the stadium when a Flyers game had just finished.


She found she actually made more money by ignoring these hot spots. When drivers flocked to a recommended area, Uber’s surge pricing — premium prices based on a lack of drivers in an area — would decrease, meaning those drivers would earn less for each ride.

Always be kind and use manners. I recommend getting a dash cam as well so if anything goes wrong, you have proof it was not on you.

I think it is a great idea to use a dash cam as well. These companies will not protect you from everything. If you have a camera, you have proof if something did or did not happen. I have seen several people try to get their drivers in trouble for being racist or sexist and the video proof is what saved them from losing their jobs.

Don't drive with a gun in the car. This is against the rules. They will get rid of you fast. A friend of my brother's got banned because he always had a gun in the car and a passenger saw it in the glove box and reported him. Even though it wasn't loaded, they were quick to get rid of him.
