And someone dressed as Chewbacca stabbed someone as well. Wanted on 2nd degree attempted murder charges.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it not up to the individual driver as the where they go. Uber does not force drivers to certain areas. I would think drivers stay out of the Quarter because of safety concerns and and traffic jams.

Just walk out of the quarter to get your Uber. Maybe like the 100 block of Bourbon from the Krystal Burger to Canal, that's a safe spot!

Same. I've never walked as far as Canal, but I think it's pretty common for them not to want to go all the way in.

If they did that all night when it's busy, they'd probably miss quite a few opportunities just due to the time spent in traffic.
