When you’re an Uber driver in the big city, you meet all kinds of people. You meet athletes, you meet college frat boys, you meet firemen who are off duty… oh yeah, and you also meet thieves. That may come off harsh, but it’s a reality that these drivers have to deal with on a day to day basis. You never know what kind of person is coming into your car, even when they look as sweet as pie. So what do you do if you’re not sure? You simply have to trust them.
When Gabrielle Canales and her two close friends got into their Uber, which was being driven by a working class man named Mohammed Bhuiyan, it seemed like it was going to be a day just like any other… or at least, that’s what Mohammed thought. Gabrielle seemed like a sweet girl, incapable of doing anything unsavory. Either way, you don’t normally expect theiverous activity from the likes of 18-year-olds, which was around how old the riders were. But alas, that is exactly what happened.
An Uber is a place where people are supposed to feel safe. The driver is supposed to provide his or her riders with a positive feeling, the kind that lets them know he’ll take them where they need to go. But what happens when the Uber driver doesn’t feel safe? What happens when the rider does something that gives the driver discomfort, the kind that will make him unsure whether he wants to drive other people to their destinations ever again? We’re not sure, but something tells us he’ll be a bit more careful about where he puts his tip jar from now on…

Imagine you’re in great need to get somewhere. You don’t have access to a car, and you don’t have time to take public transportation. You can always take a taxi, but in the last few years there has been another method of transportation that has usurped the likes of taxis – Uber. We are talking about a state of the art mobile system that has made the prospect of getting somewhere without a car easier than it ever has in human history.
