Uber Passenger Gets $600 Refund After Sitting in Traffic For 9 Hours

After a massive snowstorm hit Virginia earlier this week, countless drivers were stuck on the road including someone in an Uber!

Andrew Peters of Richmond, Virginia flew in from San Francisco but said he "didn't really realize" how bad the weather situation was on Monday night, according to Washington D.C.'s CBS affiliate WTOP-FM.

While trying to get home from Dulles International Airport, Peters and his driver got stuck on the interstate along with scores of other commuters, including Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.

Peters didn't get home until nine hours later, whereupon he paid a $200 Uber bill, but then discovered the ride-sharing service had added $400 in additional charges.

On Uber's website, it says that "heavy traffic may cause your trip to take longer than expected and to compensate your driver for the additional time, your fare may change."

Woah...Uber did eventually refund Peters the money.
