Well this is just getting more and more heated. Is the police chief in Uber's pocket? Does anyone here agree?

    Obviously the police chief has been paid off by Uber.  Deeeeep pockets.  Free Uber credits out of his nose.  Someone check his Uber app!!

    I know we all hate Uber but you've gotta admit, that lady was crossing a highway pushing her bicycle in middle of the night.  Multiple lanes.  In middle of the night.  and she didn't even try to avoid the car.  Just...walking.  I mean, I jaywalk but I do look out for cars.

    I mean, doesn't that make you mad?  What if that happened to you?  some dude walks out in front of your car where you'd never expect a pedestrian.

    I don't think Uber is at fault, accidents happen.

    Sorry. This is absurd. It was Uber's car. They need to be held accountable.

    “I won’t rule out the potential to file charges against the [backup driver] in the Uber vehicle.”

    Wow. This is getting messy.

      'Based on the footage, Moir said that the driver had little time to react. “The driver said it was like a flash, the person walked out in front of them,” she said. “His first alert to the collision was the sound of the collision.”'

      I want to know if the car itself made an attempt to stop when it detected that she was starting to move toward the roadway. It's possible that it actually reacted faster than a human could have in that situation, but the laws of physics simply didn't allow the vehicle to stop in time.

        Must have been a huge taxi fan.  Taking it for the team.

        Martyr, if you will.

          omg, dude.  

          ...but yeah, it was effective.  took them all off the road.  Months of picketing didn't take Uber off the streets, and this one woman does it in a split second.  literally.
