Uber: the smart alternative to driving under the influence

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could summon a driver to your location, and have them show up in a matter of minutes?  A sort of on-demand personal driver that requires no reservations and no waiting in long lines for taxis.

Well, there’s an app for that.  It’s called Uber.  Uber is a recently released app for iPhones and Androids that allows you to request a driver to your location.  It services 40 different cities in 15 countries.  With Uber and individual can send a text message or use the app to request a driver to a location of the user’s choosing.  User’s receive a picture of the driver that will arrive to pick them up, so they know who to expect.  That user can then track their requested driver’s progress on their way to their location.  Users can add a credit card to their secure account so that instead of having to pay upon arrival to their destination, Uber will simply send them an email with their digital receipt eliminating the need to always have cash on hand.

Drivers for Uber operate such vehicles as Lincoln Town Cars, Cadillac Escalades, Mercedes-Benz S550’s, and BMW 7 Series sedans.  Drivers arrive in nice attire and have a professional air about them.  They are experieced and can get you to your destination quickly and safely.  Many users report feeling extremely safe and comfortable using Uber.  In other words, Uber can give you more value for your money than your average taxi cab.

Recently, Uber just released UberX, a cheaper offshoot of their standard service.  The drivers are more affordable, driving hybrids and mid range type vehicles.  These drivers are unlicensed as taxi drivers but must complete background checks, in-person screening, and other quality control requirements.  Each of these vehicles will be able to seat at least four people in an effort to increase ride sharing.  In the event of ride sharing, users choose “fair split” on the app, and can invite friends to share the ride.  After accepting the invitations Uber will take care of the math and split the bill evenly among all customers involved.

Uber is a great way to get a ride wherever you nedd fast.  Spending a few dollars on Uber is surely far more appealing than dealing with the costs and consequences of a DUI.  Driving under the influence is extremely dangerous not only to those driving, but to anyone else around.  Drunk drivers have a substantially higher chance of getting in a collision which could result in severe bodily harm or death.  If you ar drunk or under the influence of any kind, spending a few dollars is definitely a preferable alternative to any of the consequences of a DUI.  It’s easy to use and their personalizeds service gives you more value for your money than a standard taxi cab.
