8. Speak-Up:

Share your thoughts politely if you believe the driver is using a route you dislike, driving too fast or doing something you don’t like. If he or she doesn't listen, comment specifically when you rate them. Don’t just provide a low rating.  Back it up.

9. Temper-tantrums & over-indulgence:

It is illegal to drink alcohol in an Uber vehicle in almost every state. Understand that an Uber driver does not have to accept you as a passenger and may cancel the ride. In our tech savvy society, almost everyone is connected at all times and your behavior is probably being recorded. So behave!

10. No mess:

No-feet-on-the-seat, eating, drinking alcohol or any beverage, smoking e-cigarettes, barfing, changing diapers or anything messy in the vehicle. Remember other passengers will enter after you exit and it is not yours. Treat the vehicle better than you do your own.

11. Avoid distractions:

Safe travel to your destination trumps boisterous behavior and loud phone conversations. Be polite to your driver, thank them, and take your trash with you.

12. Understand & provide a good rating when deserved:

Be honest when rating your driver after your ride ends. Uber may be changing the 1 – 5-star rating to an emoji. Understand that a rating of anything less than 5 stars may jeopardize the driver.

13. To Tip or Not Tip:

Tipping for good service is the U.S. American way! If you have ever been a server or tipped a barber, bartender, or babysitter, then you appreciate rewarding good service.
