This could be a fake video. However, we do not know what was said prior to the start of this video. Either of them could be right! I had a female taxi passenger who refused to pay and I drove her to a police station. On the way there she tried to tear her own dress to say that I tried to assault her. When we arrived at the police station, I marched her in with her hands behind her back and handed her over to the duty officer. Result: Her father had to pay £130 to me, while I waited for an hour and a half, for a fair of £10.

Alternative would have been to terminate the ride and go home. Hopefully that's miles away and she can stay there all day if she wants

That would maybe count as kidnap or abduction. Though if he said "I'm going home now, if you don't want to, get out" then maybe not. But it could be a court case.

The fact that she was filming it in VVS mode suggests that she was just winding him up so she could put the video on YouTube.

I'm pretty sure he'd legally be allowed to forcibly remove her, just making sure he didn't deliberately injure her. Film it for his own protection. He would be allowed to do so in the UK.

I drove a cab for a while and around here you can't touch them.

You have to call a cop, meaning you lost all the fares for the rest of the night.

How come nobody is posting in favour of his passenger? It seems like she was relentlessly polite, did not believe the driver had taken her to her destination - and was assertively resisting a lot of aggression and abuse.

I can't help feeling this is what is likely to happen when you let a lot of untrained uber loose on the streets. A licensed cabbie should have been trained to deal with this kind of situation without hurling abuse at the passenger - and almost bursting with apoplexy.

With Uber, you pay to be taken to a specific destination that is set before you are picked up, and that is shown on the phone of the driver and the passenger. You can't take the ride, then decide the agreed destination wasn't correct after-all. Well you can, but it's your problem - you order another Uber or a Taxi at the other end and this time pay more attention to the destination. A taxi driver, bus driver, etc would have been in the exact same position - a passenger refusing to leave when they arrived.

No one is defending her because she is clearly in the wrong. It was her mistake, and it was simple enough for her to defuse the situation by following his very reasonable request but she chose not to. She deserves the onslaught that she'll get as soon as she's identified.

Interesting - but I see it as totally different. It seemed like she was trying to sort out the situation - but he just wanted her out.

Watching again (with lower volume) it seems like she wanted the emergency department of the hospital and he'd taken her to administration. She probably said "I want to go to the "whatever" hospital, he probably punched that into his satnav and took her there.

They both thought they were right - he'd done his bit and taken her to the hospital, She asked to go to the hospital and didn't find herself exactly where she wanted to be.

There's all sorts of stuff we don't know about what happened, but it wouldn't take a genius to sort it out.

The reasonable cabbie would say "You asked for the hospital - here we are. Oh you don't want this part? Well it will cost another $XX to go to the place you now want."

The generous one will say "I'll drive you round the block to the emergency entrance at no extra charge."

However, he just did not want to hear anything she said. I'd love to know the back story

Uber doesn't work like that. It's the equivalent of pre-booking a taxi. It's up to the passenger to provide the correct destination, and if they arrive there and realise they were mistaken, it's their problem. The drivers aren't technically allowed to accept additions to their journey paid in cash - that would be avoiding giving Uber their cut, and the insurance and protections that they have in place would be invalidated. If she wanted the kind of ride that could hang around and drive her about until she had found out where she really wanted to be, she needed a normal taxi, not a pre-booked Uber. You can't just sit in someone else's property until you get your way.

The only thing a cab driver is trained for is driving and finding the destination. There is no further training.

Not here anyway.
