So the story here isnt the case of getting out of the car. The driver was 100% correct in not pulling over to let him out. Drivers are not allowed to stop on the side of the road to let passengers out. They also must drop at the correct door of the casino. If they drop at the wrong location then lyft/uber will deactivate the driver very quickly.

The issue here is how the driver handled it. A simple explanation of why he is not allowed would have been the end of the story. He was a complete jerk and Lyft will probably deactivate him for this which he deserves.

This is correct.

The driver was right.

He just had a poor attitude. That being said, I feel there is more that happened before the video started. (it would be interesting if the Driver releases the dash cam....)

A driver can't just pull over in a non approved stoping zone.

I'd love to defend the driver but even if he was legally correct, his attitude sucks.

According to the comments on the passenger's YouTube page, the driver can no longer drive for Lyft

according to the comments on that page, the people that comment on videos are all a bunch of tools.

People just love to make comments about things that they know absolutely nothing about.

passenger put in a destination, driver was taking him to the destination so it is not kidnapping as many of the comments suggest.
It is the drivers responsibility to get a passenger to their destination. If a driver drops them early then they open themselves up to a few issues. 1, it may be an illegal spot to drop. 2. The passenger can then claim they were dropped off somewhere else when they wanted to go to their destination and get a refund. 3. The passenger can also complain that they were dropped off in a dangerous spot which will get the driver suspended for safety. There is zero benefit to dropping early. When I drove uber there were many times people would just want out on the middle of a road. If it was even slightly unsafe where we could be rearended or they could be injured I would direct them to wait, however I did it in a professional and courteous way and not like a total ass as this clown did.

He has a sign on the headrest and is wearing a tank top. No way his rating is good in the first place and probably got a deserved deactivation.

I've seen and had worst from Lyft. Had a flight leavin Austin Bergstrom Airport at 7 30 AM and ordered the car at 545 AM. First one accepts and then cancels 15 minutes later, second one shows up at 636 AM with his gas light on Empty.

The airport is 30 miles away and fearing the car would run out of gas and get stuck on the highway, I kindly ask the driver if perhaps he should get some gas. He says "Nah I'm good!" and proceeds to the airport. I explain that I have a flight to catch and would prefer not to risk missing it because we run out of gas. He says "Not my problem, we should make it by 7 15.

So needless to say the ride was uneasy and I barely checked into the flight by 7 18. Gave him a bad rating and never used Lyft again. I dont think this guy had it that bad considering he had the option to get out of the car and wasn't under a time crunch.

Wait!

He got you to the airport on time

He was correct that he had enough gas to cover the trip

And you gave him a bad rating because he made you uneasy because you felt he was wrong (when he was right)?

Not to mention if he had listened to you and taken 5 minutes to refill for gas you might have actually missed your flight

Your flight left at 0730 and your arrived at 0718, and are upset the driver did not stop and add at least 10 minutes? You would have missed your flight and been more upset?

I always order an Uber or Lyft super early when I am going to fly. Especially if its early in the morning.
