They would if they wouldnt have to stand in the heat or lug around heavy water bottles and coolers.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

They kinda make their own hours with regular car services.

Perhaps they donít wanna hang around the busy nightlife neighborhoods.

I'm assuming most sites people go on are ones they benefit from, and most ads are there to benefit the owner.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

But are the ads unobtrusive?

Many of those sites have ads that can serve up malware or are just simply way over the top.
We should support a "visually" clean ad internet environment, something along the lines of these standards: https://adblockplus.org/acceptable-ads

a better question would've been "why don't more heimish guys drive for uber?"

My guess is the simplest answer is if a heimish guy wants to drive for $ it's generally more worth it for him to do it for a heimish car service.
