When an Uber or Lyft driver commits a crime, it makes big headlines. But lately, rideshare drivers have become the victims of violent passengers and riders who rob them. When your job is to pick up a passenger you’ve never met, in a neighborhood you’ve never been to, it can be a risky career choice. Antonio Jimenez has been driving for Uber for 8 months and he loves the job. He’s very proud that he’s logged almost 1,000 rides, and he enjoys helping his fellow Detroiters get to work, or get home safely from the bar.
