When getting to their destination, a majority of people prefer to do it peacefully. Regrettably, it is difficult to do so if your driver is blasting loud or offensive music. Asking the driver to change the station or lower the music can be uncomfortable, especially if there are other riders in the car who enjoy it.
Listening to certain music, speeches, or news outlets can put you in a terrible mood and set the tone for the entire day. To avoid that, most people simply bring their own music and don’t ask the driver for fear of receiving a bad Uber rating.
