Sunday, May 17, 2015 Bay to Breakers Road Closures Bay to Breakers famous road race begins at 8:00 a.m. PST. Thousands of runners will glaze the beautiful streets of San Francisco.

Ridesharing drivers face a battle to avoid closed streets. Road closures are in effect throughout downtown San Francisco and along the race course. One Uber client shared that she gave an UberX driver a "1" star for getting her to work late last year on Bay to Breakers' race day.

It is way too risky to drive in San Francisco before, during and after the Bay to Breakers race. Star ratings allow drivers to keep driving on ridesharing platforms such as Uber and Lyft. Guaranteeing $45 an hour is not enough money to deal with the chaos inevitably disrupting San Francisco streets.

Unfortunately, misinformed clients overlook the high number of road closures. It is impossible for drivers to avoid these blocked roads. However, clients are too quick to fire out low scores to harm drivers.

Ridesharing drivers should view all road closures to increase their awareness. San Francisco streets will transform into a moving circus in the next 3-4 hours. This link will guide drivers to all road closures in San Francisco.

Drive safe. Watch out for spectators and race participants.
