    How many Uber/Lyft drivers do we have at SBR?

    Have you ever been robbed? Ever had to throw anyone out of your car? What are the craziest stories?

    Can you imagine if someone tried to rob Brock? They would get steel pumped into them from his loaded 380.

    Robbed? Of what exactly? Uber drivers don't carry cash. They get paid via the app.

    Same here, I've taken cab rides on the meter for $7 that are $11 on uber. Uber is much more expensive, plus I trust the licensing and insurance of a legit cab company far more than some rando with a Prius and the uber app.

    That's what I found out as well when I took a cab last month.. It's almost half cheaper then Uber. Taking a taxi cab from where I live in Santa Monica to LAX is way cheaper then UBER. It's just a fact!

    Robbed twice as a cabbie in the 80's. By knife.

    Once in a bar pick up near Nellis AFB. The guy was waiting for me outside the bar. Major redflag as you have to go in the the bar and wait.

    The other guy robbed me in a casino near downtown as I went into pee. He saw me go in and followed me. Gave me a beating. Luckily not with his knife hand. I should have peed in my usual spot the Nugget.

    I worked the hood in NLV my first few months. Never had a problem. Those gangbangers I picked up always had a bankroll in their pocket enough to choke a horse.

    Both guys were caught within days and got about 40 from me.

    sounds like its too dangerous to drive for either lyft or uber. I'll just rely on losing sports bets as income

    But no money is exchanged. Why would someone think itís profitable to rob a Uber/Lyft driver?

    exactly. unless you happen to know the uber driver has his own cash it makes no sense.
