Is Uber ethical?

A fairly common conclusion is that Uber needs to become more ethical if it is to survive. It is not that Uber is incapable of such ethical measures. But for this company specifically, the additional cost that is required to look after drivers and customers is likely to be too great.

Can I buy just Rideshare insurance?

Rideshare companies offer full insurance coverage after you've accepted a ride request and while you're driving passengers, but coverage is skimpier while you're waiting for a request. If you can't get it, you'll need to buy a commercial auto policy to be properly insured. You may risk your personal coverage.
