It was just last week I took my first Uber ride. The short 1-mile trip had me very impressed. Speed, convenience and affordability seemed to make this form of transportation the best thing since sliced bread. However, the events of Sunday have completely changed my mind. I see now why taxi drivers need to be trained and screened not to be crooks.My complaint to the California Public Utilities Commission, Transportation Licensing Dept (which regulates TNC’s including Uber) was prompted by Uber’s dishonesty.
