Anybody who’s ever taken an Uber knows that anytime you step into the stranger’s car, you’re taking a chance. It’s not that all Ubers are inherently dangerous or anything, so you’re not taking a chance on your safety, per se. It’s just that, you never really know what you’re gonna get in these situations.
There are some pretty special drivers out there, drivers that go above and beyond the call of duty and drivers who fall a bit short of expectations. Here are 40 of the most interesting Uber experiences on the Internet…

It’s All Relative
Listen, before you judge, we have all done things we’re not proud of in order to get out of a ticket. If anything, at least this driver was dedicated to the performance enough to sell the hug.
This driver wants his customers to know that they welcome people of all kinds into their cab, with one small caveat.
Hell of a Response

This driver didn’t opt for the more advanced PS4 or Xbox. No, they realized that the classics never go out of style.
We are truly living in the future, we just have to be careful that we don’t inadvertently create a Skynet powered by vehicular taxi terminators. That said, autonomous vehicle technology is, undeniably, improving every day. During testing of their self-driving cars in California, however, an Uber SUV with a human backup driver struck and killed 49-year-old biker. Police released a 22-second video showing the woman walking from a darkened area and onto the street just before the incident. The human driver seemed to be distracted until moments before the impact. Uber suspended its autonomous vehicle testing after the accident; however, it has since resumed testing in a downsized environment, according to the New York Times. Uber hopes that, one day, the technology will become the norm.

Yield to Pedestrians
