If you’re an Uber driver in a large metropolis, you have the opportunity to meet many different types of people from all walks of life. You might encounter athletes or rowdy college students one day and then firefighters or thieves the next. It’s hard to know who you can trust, but ultimately it comes down to trusting your intuition and hoping for the best.
When Gabrielle Canales and her two friends got into an Uber being driven by Mohammed Bhuiyan, it seemed like any other day… at least from Mohammed’s perspective. Gabrielle came across as a kind girl who couldn’t commit any wrongdoing. With that said, you wouldn’t normally anticipate thievery from individuals around the age of 18 – which is how old the riders were. Unfortunately, that’s precisely what happened.
Uber is a service that instills safety in its passengers. The driver is supposed to create an uplifting atmosphere where the rider feels confident that they will get to their destination safely. But what happens when the Uber driver doesn’t feel safe? We’re unsure of the consequences when drivers make their riders uncomfortable to the point where they may not want to drive other people around again. But we feel that they will be more meticulous about where they place their tip jar from now on…
Gotta love Uber
