No, the drunk said he worked for Uber. He doesn't pass the requirements to drive for Uber so I find that highly doubtful. In addition to the requirement that the driver have a clean driving record, pass a background check they must also have a valid drivers license, not a permit like this guy claimed he had.

I think the person claimed he was driving for Uber but that was not substantiated in article I read.

You must have a smart phone to use Uber...

We, hubby and I still have the old school flip phones. Same fed gov plan that we started in 1998 $9.95 per phone Sprint. how could we give that up.

Maybe that could be a reason....older people, such as myself still use the phone to talk to people.....we don't text....

True you do need a smart phone. If your phone dies I have couple really old flip phones the kids play with.

With all due respect, I have read all of these posts and I have the following comment based upon many, many UBER rides in the U.S. and abroad: I estimate that the majority of posters here have never had an UBER ride. Try it once, and then report back.

You got me---never had an Uber ride. As a matter of fact, Uber wasn't even in business the last time I rode in a taxi. My son lives in an Illinois city about the size of TV and surrounding area and he uses Uber all the time. He thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread.
