A dangerous side effect of driving for Uber that you never think about - becoming a getaway driver without realizing it! Unbelievable sroty.

"On Sunday morning, around 2:30 a.m. in the Depot District of Lubbock, Texas, Uber driver Jake Collinson responded to a trip request. When Collinson picked up his passenger, who told him there were four more passengers coming, he realized they were fighting with another group. The other four jumped in Collinson’s vehicle after hearing a police siren. He attempted to kick them out of the vehicle, to avoid being implicated as a “getaway driver.” But then the bullets hit his SUV."

    Drivers are always in danger. It is actaully a VERY dangerous job, this is why I will not let my son become an Uber driver.

    finally something worth reading in the world of Uber where every article is about Uber being bad and women being attacked by drivers.
