Investigation Reveals 100+ Uber Drivers Accused of Sexual Misconduct
CNN exclusively revealed yesterday that an investigation into Uber drivers across the country found over 100 drivers accused of either sexual assault or abuse in the past four years. Charges include forcible touching, false imprisonment and rape, and drivers have either been arrested, are wanted by the police, or have been named in civil suits. CNN explained that while this information is not available to the public, they were able to find the trend by reviewing “police reports, federal court records and county court databases for 20 major U.S. cities.” CNN also found that in the past, Uber has advocated for a “safe ride home” and has created campaigns around designated drivers, urging users to avoid drinking and driving. The network’s investigation reported that many of the victims had been drinking at the time of the incidents.
