Please do your part in keeping Uber in Florida. I drive for Uber to help put myself through medical school. Without ride share companies like Uber, I would have no choice but to put an end to my lifelong dream of becoming a physician as the cost of tuition continues to rise. Uber enables me to create my own schedule, work part time and is truly a life saver. It is not only myself whom benefits from ride share companies like Uber; I'm sure if you look at the data, the rates of driving under the influence and alcohol related motor vehicle accidents have substantially declined since the introduction of Uber. Now that safe, reliable and affordable personal transportation is possible and easily accessible, thousands of people are choosing to smarten up and not drink and drive. Once again, please do your part in keeping Uber in Florida. You can rest assure you are doing the right thing. Thank you, CP
