Exhibit A: a cluster of very rich gated communities. I have no idea how they got this never-surge deal with Uber, but good luck getting anyone to accept their pings. I know I won’t.
PS: some areas here also have scheduled masks. These are harder to detect, only when the surge spills to the outside. For example, an amusement cluster on the islands gets lit during the bar close, so everything looks normal. However, right after the fireworks on 4th, when pretty much the entire map went red, the islands became a dark hole… and contributed to a ton of non-surge pings.
