  1. While the congestion on Salem st has always been bad it has seemed to increase with proliferation of uber.

    Apparently drivers are supposed to wait for 5 minutes before being able to cancel.

    5 minutes in a heavily congested area?

    1. As opposed to the taxi’s that stop suddenly? Or visitors who stop suddenly to drop passengers off? Or the pedestrians who walk in the middle of the street and do not get out of the way?

  2. Uber drivers are a menace. They stop suddenly, block traffic, park in bike lanes and don’t look where they are going. They need to follow the rules like every one else and be considerate of others.
