A quick read about a Ride Share Driver
Uber Diva: Hot Tips for Drivers and Passengers of Uber and Lyft - Charles St. Anthony,Marcella Hammer

This is a combination of memoir of a Lyft/Uber driver, and a guide to starting/surviving/thriving as one in a tough market. A memoir/guide written by a humorist, it should be stressed, so there's plenty of humor infused throughout. That right there sounds like a winning book -- and <b>Uber Diva</b> almost was one.

 

Sadly, it came across as a pretty good first draft or a series of short blog posts. Every chapter -- almost every paragraph -- could've used just a little more. A little more detail, a little more context. A few chapters read like a thorough outline rather than actual prose -- just a series of bullet points along a theme. A little more expansion, a little more time spent with each idea and this would've been a whole lot of fun. As it is, <b>Uber Diva</b> is frequently worth a chuckle or wry smile to oneself, but it's never enough to satisfy.

 

I'm not crazy about St. Anthony's organization, either -- I'm not sure it ever made that much sense. Particularly, the jump from his opening to the rest just didn't work for me, it was a jarring tonal shift. The first chapter would've fit better as a closing or penultimate chapter, if you ask me.

 

There's a lot to like here, but it feels undercooked. It's enjoyable enough -- especially, I bet, for Lyft/Uber drivers -- but it could've been so much better. A little more revision, a little expansion and I bet I'd be talking about a good read, rather than one that's just good enough.

Irwin Consulting Services Review: Tips to a safe driving this winter season

 

During this month full of joy and surprises because of the holiday season, many people are excited and enthusiastic. But the cold weather might hinder some people’s pure happiness this merry season especially on the roads. It is inevitable to do some last minute shopping nowadays for some families as preparation for their wonderful celebration of Christmas and New Year’s Eve due to their busy schedules. Other than that, going to work and school using your car during this winter season can be different because you need to be very careful to steer clear of accidents. Provided below are some basic yet helpful tips prepared by Irwin Consulting Services to guide you in having a safe driving during this icy weather.

 

Replace ordinary tires with winter tires

 

Experts suggest putting this kind of tire to ensure utmost safety for your family. In the United States, many places even mandate every car owner to have snow tires during the winter season. You can be certain with better traction with such tires once the temperature hits 7 degrees Celsius and below. Look forward to greater control and shorter stopping distances on road surfaces during this cold and icy season. You should also suggest this kind of tire to other people around you as well who own a car to guarantee their safe driving. Know that winter tires could be more expensive than others but it is something that is really worth having and you can use them for quite some time. 

 

Look out for drifts

 

You might be driving to a clear road smoothly so you put in more speed, but Irwin Consulting Services wanted you to watch out for snow drifts too while you’re driving. Never let yourself be involved with dangerous accidents and put your car into a mess. Car spins could happen and it can bring menace to you so you must focus on the road and other elements around it while driving. Be careful even on clear roads because strong winds can push the drifts into the road.

 

Protect tire valves

 

You can avoid moisture from freezing by simply covering the tire valves. Never again have a flat tire just because air escaped the tire because of an uncovered cap. 

 

Put ample air

 

This winter season, you and your car need to adjust to the drastic change in temperature. Regularly check your tire pressure as part of your tire maintenance to maintain its good condition when facing the snowy roads under low temperatures and high air pressure.

 

Organize all necessary items beforehand

 

You must be prepared to make sure of your safety while on the icy roads. Put on hats, mitts and a shovel inside your car’s trunk and bring them all the time especially during this season. Don’t forget to be prepared with a kitty litter too because this can give traction to your car during the cold weather. Equip yourself with an extra jug of winter windshield washer fluid as well to always have a clear vision of the road to protect your long journey.

 

Teach teenagers 

 

You needed to be the guardian of new drivers on the road in your family or close friends. Pass on your knowledge to those young souls and make them understand that they need to double their attention on the road especially during these times of white and cold weather. And if you’re a teen reading this, remember to always listen to people older than you and have many years of experience driving. 

 

Your current tires are not destined to stay with your car for many, many years. They have their own limitations and with this, you must be aware when to replace them with new ones. You can change snow tires every two to three seasons. Your old tires can be remade into something useful by a tire collector, so consider contacting one and give your previous tires a new purpose.

 

Irwin Consulting Services has been a good organization in providing a helping hand to ensure public safety, and this article was made as part of their goal in guaranteeing that every family is safe this holiday season.
