  1. In my experience, Uber drivers are the most decent people and are taught to be calm and patient when passengers are in the wrong.
    What did you, Mr Passenger, do to get this driver angry? He is the calm one throughout the video… you’re the ones screaming like mad people.
    Give us the full context.

    • I simply asked him why he started the trip about 1 km away from my home. When I took out my phone to record him, this is what transpired

  2. There’s no Uber driver who can chase a rider without any valid reason, no ways. The guys who threatens to kill the Uber driver while infeont of his wife and kid (s), you can tell why they were chased out of the car.

    • So what would you have done if your kids and wife were stepping out the vehicle and the driver takes off? Would you have stood there and kept quiet? Or would you have taken action

  3. Please open a criminal case against this man, and a protection order!

    • If u se someone fighting with a Uber driver without going feather just know that person is an idiot. Uber guys they are loyal to everyone.

    • That is exactly what was done in this case we have contacted uber and they have given us his insurance details to however I am not after cash and refuse to claim I would just like action to taken against the driver from uber and local authorities

  4. firstly how long did the driver wait for this family. And it seems most people worry about their money more than the drivers time they waste. If someone said to yu i kill yu bruuu becareful with those words this family threat this driver like shit thats why he behave in that manner

    • That’s the thing the driver did not wait he started the trip 1 km away from my home. Besides that if someone takes off with your family half hanging out of car would you have stood by and let your kid get ran over (which almost happened if I did not pull him out the way). Uber has given me the insurance details of the driver to claim however we refuse to. We want justice to be served and there is a case of reckless driving and endangering the lives of minors opened up against the guy as well an incident report has been made. All this drama for asking a simple question like why did you start the trip before arriving at the pick up point. If you are a father you will understand why I’ve said what I’ve said

    • Riders must stop treating drivers like shit, bahave please,screeng like that for what? If I were you I wasn’t going to show the whole world the kind of a person I’m, your reaction was so bad

  5. I have left individual responses to each of questions please reply to mine.

    I am the person behind the camera that wants to show you not all uber drivers are as pleasant as some I’ve meet.
