Uber Still Hates Blind People

Uber sure seems to like bad press. The ride-sharing company is back in the news for hating on blind people and their service dogs. I would be more likely to give Uber a pass had this been an isolated incident but how many times has this happened now? frown

According to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrest report cited by the Orlando Sentinel, an Uber driver hit a blind man standing in the door frame of his van, and laughed when deputies arrested him for refusing to take the man’s service dog. Police said the Uber driver laughed during his arrest, as if he "didn’t fully understand that he had broken the law."
