I would never use that company personally. Try asking one how long they intend to sit in a space allocated to residents and you'd soon go off them. I've had to circle round on numerous occasions because they sit there for 15/20 minutes in the only available space.
Park up so they're blocked in. Sorted.

Or check if the driver is driving not someone else just renting it? Then who knows the past of that person.

I would think that would probably result in me starting a riot and getting a ticket of some description for blocking the public highway.

Could you not just ring Addison Lee and order a cab to take you to Stansted airport asap, give your address as further up the road and then pull into the space once it's been vacated?

The main benefit of UBER is you no longer have to hitch a ride with a racist Chelsea supporting cabbie whilst paying over the odds.

I suspect the reason they are there is they are waiting to collect. The likes of Adlerhorst that order the addison lee from an expensive restaurant they probably aren't paying for and then cannot tear themselves away from a final glass of free wine.

I have no idea what Uber are but black cabs are a rip-off. One black cab ****** from Sutton station took a ridiculous detour from a straight-line route to my home. I was so stunned I let them do it and didn't even complain. Wankers.

That probably wasn't a proper black cabbie.. I don't think they have to do the central london knowledge.

With the advent of satnav and traffic reporting etc - isnt the knowledge out of date?

I feel somewhat comforted looking at the Uber drivers sat navscreen directing him about, rather then whatever magical mystery tour the black cab driver has decided to take me on!

Similar to those above, only use black cabs for work purposes, tho i know one company who have switched to Uber as easier to sort for staff and no need to do expenses etc as its automatically paid for directly from the company.

I am less sure. My sat nav always tries to take me routes i would never personally choose from personal experience. They say they get "traffic updates" but i think in reality driving around london has as much to do with knowing your routes and actually how long they take rather than how long a computer thinks they will take.

Usually I am getting a cab home because I've had a drink. If I know the fastest route back, I have no problem sharing that with my driver.

I wonder what kind of star rating you might receive now in an uber.

Uber represent the worst of modern times. Modern technology harnessed to cheap third world labour with the profits going to the likes of Goldman Sachs in foreign tax havens.

If that is progress, you can keep it.
