Zuokas has started to work as an Uber taxi driver and said he is getting top ratings from customers. When potential customers see the former city mayor behind the wheel, they often get distracted and look for other vehicles thinking that it is a mistake.

However, Zuokas said that all his passengers have given him the highest five star rating.

“Uber - super. Enjoyed it. What could be better - I am paid for an actual work, I received advice and comments. What a rating! What politicians have that?” wrote Zuokas on Facebook after his first day as an Uber driver.
