I was pulled over during an uber ride in texas and my driver started freaking out, he hadn't had a valid tx license, and the car he was driving wasnt registered to him nor did he have insurance. The cop who pulled us over hugged me and said wr had went to high school together and told the driver hes lucky that he was with me or else his car would be impounded, and asked if i would drive it instead.  It was so strange. I didn't go to high school with the cop, yet he put on such a great show about all of it. I was currently going to court on a pending charge and i wound up getting probation not long after and ironically, my probation officer is the guys sister.  Coincidence or violation of my privacy ? Please give me yalls opinions and thoughts!!!

    There is so much to unpack here... Are you saying that your probation officer is the Uber driver's sister? or the cops sister? I don't see why this cop would let the driver off like this. AND how is he even able to drive for Uber without a license?!

       I agree, it should not be legal for them to even drive uber without valid information. The cop who lied about growing up with me ended up being my probation officers brother. Weird

    Sounds like an interesting situation. I woulda been happy to play along w the cop to help the driver out. Although I’m curious to kno whether the cop was sincere or just puttin on a show so they didn’t need to ticket the driver, impound the car and write a report. I’m generally on the opposite side as the cops, at least until there is a general consensus among them where they recognize that they work for the tax payers and their duty is to uphold the constitution of the United States not be at war against the average citizen or believe it’s their job to “sniff out” crime all while power tripping on their “authority”. As far as the Probation Officer situation, I’m not sure exactly who’s sister they are but if being related helped you out, which I hope it did/does, then I’d say that is good too, even if you feel like your privacy was invaded a bit.
    I do hope you got your fair for free and are promised a couple free fairs in the future from this driver you saved.
    Great story anyway, thanks for sharing.

    Most important question, did you drive around the rest of the night and make some $$$? 😀

    It’s crazy how this isn’t the first time I’ve heard a story of the customer driving the Uber car. is this the new norm.
    so many abandoned uber users.
