Female Passengers Creeped Out By Uber Drivers

Posted on March 31, 2014

From article in The Daily Beast:

At the end of the ride, the Uber driver asked me if I had been near Lincoln Center a few hours earlier. I said I hadn't, since I didn't remember walking past there. Then he took out his iPad. "Really?" he asked. "Because you look like this girl." He turned the iPad around to face the back seat. To my surprise, I saw a full-length, close-up picture of me, wearing the workout clothes I’d had on an hour previously.

    In the Detroit/Royal Oak Michigan market I'm seeing these black cars (which I presume are Uber) driving around slowly eyeballing everyone as if to get their attention and ask them if they need a ride. I've been in the city with clients for seven years and just now am I seeing this influx of "strollers" like they are stalking the streets. Some look creepy and half of them don't even have a clean black car.
