Uber Driver and Passenger Exchange Roles, Passenger Almost Compelled to Drive By Uber Driver
What Happens When Your Uber Driver Falls Asleep While Driving?
Well, Uber has been in news for the few days for some illicit ongoing constantly. Though they were quite reputed for charging excessive bills and amounts, however this time Uber went out of the way to prove their idiosyncrasies. An Uber driver fell asleep while driving the car from New Delhi to Gurgaon.
Yes, you heard it right.
Ishan Gill, who had booked an Uber for going to Gurgaon from Delhi fell prey to the situation. As the cab had already arrived quite delayed (almost an hour) and the driver seemed to be dizzy, Ishaan had inquired whether everything was okay. The driver though had responded in a positive manner, after some time Ishaan realized what a mistake he has made.
When Ishaan had reached almost near Aurobindo Marg, he suddenly noticed that his driver had dozed off and the car was on the verge of hitting a divider. It was around 1.30 a.m. Ishaan had to make the driver park the car. He offered him some water too. Since Ishaan’s net was not working, he decided to make to the steering. After showing the driver license, he finally took to driving and drove all the way from Delhi to Gurgaon. And imagine who was on the passenger’s seat? It was the driver himself.
As Ishaan reached his society, he found a message that his trip costed 427 INR. Unable to awaken the driver, he thrust a 500 rupee note and went away. According to Ishaan it was not the influence of any alcohol but some other thing that probably was responsible for the driver’s state.
The next morning Ishan did all the requirements by filling in the Uber feedback form as well as complaining to the necessary portal. Though he was offered a reimbursement of 500 INR later, but Ishaan denied to take it. He had only one question to ask that what would have happened if the car had hit the divider?
Uber should engage themselves in thorough test of the driver’s background without a fail. While an Uber executive was agitated about the fact that how could Ishaan drive without a commercial license, another said that he should have made a call to the customer care for the situation.
