Are Rideshare Drivers Dropping Rides to Take Advantage of Surge Pricing?

This hasn’t happened to me, but I’m not surprised at all. I’m kinda meh about this, in the fact naturally I wish it didn’t happen, but I also don’t blame the individual drivers. I do hope Uber is actually monitoring the # of cancellations.

I tell myself the same thing as when there’s traffice — “You are not IN traffic, you ARE traffic”. Ie, if I’m trying to grab an Uber at 7 pm on Friday night, I’m directly contributing to the surge pricing for other people as well. If this happened at 1 pm on a Monday afternoon, I’d be super annoyed though.
