Good points, Leonard. I totally understand how drivers need to protect themselves. With that said, I hope you can understand my point as well.
Also, there is a difference in one being recorded versus being "seen" or "heard." This is why there are different set of rules for recording situations. Back to my three points, I don't mind if my driver overheard my conversations or saw me sleeping. I do mind if the driver took a photo of me or recorded the conversations.
BTW, I am not sure if I completely agree with your comparison against the bus. I'd like to think that the "level" of expectation would be different on a public bus from a private car.
Uber is definitely really shady.
What about that time they had an office day, where every employee of NYC got together and requested Lyft rides all at once? Then they later cancelled them all?
Wouldn't there always be at least ONE person aware of the recording? I mean, whoever owns the camera and/or set it up? LOL.
It's one of those he-said-she-said situations. Uber won't be able to do anything.
I said a certain "level" I didn't say "a level expected in a bedroom."
If I am on a phone in an Uber, I should be able to do it without the fear of it being recorded.
If I am tired and fall asleep in a cab, I expect some dude to not own a footage of me sleeping.
If I am wearing a skirt, I expect there to not be a camera in front shooting back towards me.
Again, is that too much to ask?
I'd expect a level of privacy for sure. Right? Is that really too much to ask these days.
Yeah, there is no way you'd fit in an UberX with all that luggage. If you have a four passengers, that means all seats are full.
I assume those who want to sue will go after the parent company, i.e. Uber, and then the insurance company. They always go for the bigger wallets first.
If the passenger is threatening the driver, that person is just bluffing and trying to scare him. He's just a jerk. Probably has no idea what the laws are and probably doesn't even know how.
I created this follow up question. Perhaps this parking question was a bit ignorant.
