You say Uber " Drivers are NOT trained or licensed"
I'm not 100%, but I suspect "legitimate" taxi drivers don't have any special training either. If they do, what would it even entail? Providing customer service?
Also, you say with Uber "you don't know if that driver that picks you up isn't some serial killer looking for the next victim, just drank a 5th, or just is out looking for a few bucks"
Not to berate the average cab driver or service, but I just don't believe they are the cream of the crop of society. I don't think they are alcoholics or murderers, but neither are 99.9% of everyone else.
