Many Uber riders had more to worry about on New Year’s morning than a hangover — namely a bill for a late-night ride that might have totaled as much as hundreds of dollars.

Complaining about Uber’s exorbitant surge pricing has become something of a New Year’s tradition, alongside champagne and fireworks. The holiday is always one of the ride-hailing service’s busiest nights of the year, and rates regularly skyrocket as high as six-to-eight-times normal prices in major cities
