"Uber driver in the Kinzie bike lane across from 555 W. Kinzie at 6:25 pm last night. These Uber drivers have gotten really bold about parking in bike lanes to pick up fares, and Uber doesn't apepar to be doing anything about it. "

"Landscaping truck & trailer in the sb Elston bike lane just south of Division this morning. This location is very hazardous as the traffic lanes are narrow, so not a ton of room when you have to pop out of the bike lane. I tweeted the company…"

Cheryl replied to Gage B.'s discussion Reporting bad driving of uber and lyft drivers
"That's a huge issue with the rideshares - you can't tell who they are driving for at a given time if they are driving for more than one, or whether they are driving on their own time or on the clock."
