"Tempe police have identified the driver as 44-year-old Rafael Vasquez. It appears that Vasquez spent more than four years in prison for two felony convictions before starting work as an Uber driver. Local media have identified the driver as Rafaela Vasquez. The AP has not been able to reach Vasquez and authorities would not explain the discrepancy."

    Drivers get vetted and you always have a few that sneak thru the system. Now, let's flip the coin, could you imagine the amount of convicted felons that ride in your private car because they don't get vetted?

        A poor person died from this accident, and there's a billion dollar industry in turmoil.   and you guys are talking about this dude's ponytail.

    Uber recruiter: "Look.  It's easy.  You just sit there and that's it.  It literally drives itself!"

    And in this dude's defense, sitting there for hours on end must get pretty boring.
