Uber boss suggests drivers use ’90s kids game to distract drunk passengers....By Kitty Knowles.


Uber's Chief Security Officer has recommended drivers keep a Bop It on the back seat to entertain drunks and keep their cab safe.


In the UK we get pretty chuffed if an Uber driver so much as hands over a bottle of water on a ride home from the pub.

Now, the cab company’s Chief Security Officer, Joe Sullivan, has suggested employees hand out something even better to the somewhat inebriated – a retro children’s toy.

Bop It, a Hasbro toy that has existed in various manifestations since 1996, is “a great way to keep drunk riders entertained so they don’t distract their driver”, says Sullivan.

The Uber boss spotted the trend in Charlotte, North Carolina, and recommends it to drivers elsewhere.

“If you use the Uber app in Charlotte, North Carolina you might find a Bop It toy in the back of your driver’s car. Folks there have found it’s a great way to keep drunk riders entertained so they don’t distract their driver.”

They should give the punters a map to work out where they are when they get lost!
