All the more reason to carry a weapon. Uber’s constant issue with drivers protecting themselves is weird. Just look at this story from two angles:
2. Uber driver attacked by guy with knife and escapes harm, needs some counselling to recover, might still work for Uber.
2. Uber driver nearly dies in knife attack, needs psychological counselling and stops driving for Uber.
3. Uber driver shoots knife attacker, gets disconnected from Uber.
4. Uber driver dies in knife attack.
