    See, some people love getting in the WRONG Uber, because.they..it must be someone else's.  SO the ride ends up being free.  Cancel your own, and voila!  Free ride everywhere.

    This really shouldn't be so hard. They even give you the car make, model, and color in the app. Just do a quick scan!

    When Uber X first started I remember thinking they were crazy to think people would willfully get into a stranger's car for a ride.... I guess people are stupider than I ever realized.

    This actually happens a lot in Manhattan.  Not for attacking you but to take you on rides.  and you pay cash.

    Who the heck sits in the frontseat of an Uber?

    "If you're traveling alone, Uber encourages you to ride in the back seat instead of the front. That way, in an emergency, you can exit on either side of the car. They say this also gives both you and your driver more personal space."
