8: The Accidental Cyclist
The need for Uber is not just confined to late-night party-goers, and sometimes an Uber can be a necessity after an accident. Roadgoer124 told the story of his experience at the sight of a car accident. “I was having trouble getting to the pick-up destination because of a car accident. As I got closer, I learned that the pick-up location was the accident. The rider came stumbling to my car and stated that he had just been hit by a car while riding his bike. The drop-off destination was the hospital. Only in America do we take Ubers instead of ambulances to the hospital.”
The cyclist in question was wise to call an Uber to get him away from the scene of the accident. With the sheer amount of traveling that an Uber driver does in a single day, it’s no wonder that Roadgoer124 would bump into this kind of an event.
