And often times it's safer because each driver has a rating out of five stars, and it tells you their license plate on the app, so you can verify that it is in fact the car you're supposed to be getting. If you get into a taxi sometimes you don't know who's picking you up. Granted, the Uber drivers have taken advantage of their passengers at times. But so have...

I think this is a huge shock to people...
