Riding in the passenger seat of Uber is a convenient and relatively safe way to get around the city or commute to and from work, but it may not be as safe as you think if your driver exhibits any of these three behaviors.
While safety advocates claim that Uber is a much safer alternative to regular taxis, our Philadelphia Uber accident attorney at Dan Doyle Law Group begs to differ. Unfortunately, there are many Uber drivers who are not as professional or cautious as you expect them to be. For women, meanwhile, riding alone in the passenger seat with a complete stranger poses additional safety risks.
But how can you tell whether or not your Uber ride will be unsafe and dangerous? Our Uber accident attorney in Philadelphia says that there are three surprising driver’s behaviors to watch out for the second you hop into an Uber vehicle.
The reason we call these behaviors “surprising” is because we are not going to blabber about the behaviors that are obviously known to be dangerous. We are excluding such behaviors as drunk driving, distracted driving, aggressive driving, reckless driving, and other obviously dangerous and risky behaviors while operating a vehicle.
There are other, surprising behaviors that make your Uber driver more at risk of crashing into another vehicle during your trip. These behaviors include:
“Watch out for these three behaviors when casually chit chatting with your Uber driver about the weather,” warns our Philadelphia Uber accident lawyer at Dan Doyle Law Group. Just because your Uber driver seems like a good guy does not give him the right to put your health or life in danger by operating a vehicle while hungover, tired, or not in the mood.
