A Calgary mother is raising concerns after she was recently confronted by an Uber driver who attacked her family’s ethnicity and now she’s sharing video of the incident.
Sabrina Rodrigues says she was picking her son up from daycare on June 13 with the help of the ride sharing service Uber. She says she was verbally attacked by the driver after she returned to the car with her three-year-old son at her side. “I get into the car with my son and instantly he points to his seat and he says you shouldn’t put him there.
It’s dirty. He left a mark on my seat.’” said Rodrigues. In the two-minute recording, the driver can be seen screaming at Rodrigues about her son, telling her that he doesn’t like kids and doesn’t allow them in the car.
Rodrigues replied by telling the driver, “Then don’t drive Uber.” “He then makes an illegal U-turn, starts yelling at me saying ‘I don’t like to take kids in my car.
