My uber driver in nyc was pulled over and it turned out he didn't have a valid drivers license. I ended up being late for a meeting at my office. Should i expect or ask uber for some type of compensation for putting me in that situation?

    Yes,  uber has already been notified and is looking into it. The driver was driving on an expired or revoked license.  I left after the police realized it and am not sure if his Reg  and Ins were ok.  What kind if compensation can I ask uber for the inconvenience and unsafe position they put me in.  Thinking an acct credit if some sort?  Thanks

      They should refund your trip and THEN SOME. They should give you some credit. $50 sounds right to me. And if they give you any trouble.. tweet at them about it. Tweeting is the best way to escalate these days. It's like "asking for a manager" except it's even better because it's in full public view.

      Wow, this is a crazy story. I would definitely ask for a refund and some sort of account credit. Think about it, Uber should want to make you happy. They wouldn't want this to get out...

    While the police were figuring it out, we just left and walked 20 blocks to work.  The driver did run the charge!

      Why didn' you hop in a cab with all the empty cabs around I' sure there were some right in front of you. A proper compensation would be a baby nipple for you to suck on . No TLC driver will ever operate without a valid license and most likely it was due to a computer error.

        am rush hour,  no cabs & I have a nipple you can suck on. What the hell does TLC drivers have to do with this? Computer error... Sure you can believe that.

          All TLC bases keep electronic records of expired documents including drivers license and TLC license. It is IMPOSSIBLE for a driver to log in for work if you have a expired and/ or invalid license. Secondly the NYS DMV is privately owned and it is very possible that the driver had his/her license inadvertently suspended for unknown reasons.  Thirdly the driver would then have no insurance since they too are computer integrated. The nipple is for your childish attitude that deserves no merit for compensation.  MAN UP JACK.

            Sorry Pathfinder but it seems to me that Big Frank is an assshole and  I apologize on behalf  of Uber drivers everywhere - PS  I could be wrong but I doubt it!😊

              I see that there is no shortage of jerk offs but my information is correct because it happened to me.

      Wait you mean the driver had the Uber app running the whole time he was being questioned by the cops?!

        Weelll.. to be fair, he was probably freaking out and not thinking straight. Especially since he knew he didn't have a license and was in deep doo doo.

    I'm curious what happened after the cop pulled you over. Did the cop have to call in a tow truck? Did he offer to let you drive the car away (assuming you have a valid license)?? LOL. Or were you just left stranded on the side of the road?
