Driver 8, what will you do once your sub-prime loan “rideshare” starts needing brakes, etc. after you’ve racked up 200+ miles a day? Do you have money from your meager returns from driving LyftPool to keep your car safe to the public? Or will you drive without brakes?
This is unfortunate, the culture seems to be so toxic that many individuals who are part of the Uber ecosystem tend to forget their ethics and values.
