You never know what you’re getting yourself into when you get into the car for an Uber ride. It may just be a boring ride, or it might be something shocking and unpredictable. That’s exactly what some of these people explained in this article about their Uber rides.
Most of their rides were pleasant, while some had a once-in-a-lifetime experience that they wish to never relive. It seems that not all Uber drivers care about their ratings and what others have to say about them in reviews. Surprisingly enough, however, others have gone out of their way in hopes they please their customers. Check out 30 times Uber drivers surprised their clients below.
30. Took A Special Turn
The last place you or your driver wants to be is stuck in traffic. Sometimes it’s impossible to avoid and happens. Most Uber drivers sit and wait for traffic to clear. That is, except this one, who was dead set on getting his passengers to their final destination even if it meant taking an alternate route. That meant jumping the curb and driving down the sidewalk.
One of the riders explained how their experience was with their Uber driver on this particular ride. Because he was inpatient, he decided to drive up on the sidewalk, not thinking about anyone who may have been walking there. Everyone in the car was screaming at him to get back onto the road while he argued with them, stating that he was in the “Uber Lane.” It’s a miracle that no one got hurt over while trying to get out of his way.
