Apparently all Uber passengers sign something when we sign up for Uber that says that we are not allowed to go to court if we get assaulted by a driver? is this true? read an article about it today and seemed a bit confused. Isn't that a protected constitutional right? Someone know?

    The women wrote a letter to Uber's board trying to get them to allow their case to be heard. I don't think they have gotten an answer yet, but my bet is that it will not go anywhere.

    Can you imagine if we didn't sign something? People would just be making up lawsuits left and right!

    Uber has a sexual harassment problem, but with drivers and the people it employs in its corporate setting. It is all a trickle down. A major rehaul needs to happen for any of these policies to change.

    Is Lyft the same as Uber? I feel like I hear about more sexual assault cases with Uber, but rarely do I hear Lyft. Is it just because Lyft is a bit smaller?

      Uber is bigger so you hear about it more. 

      A Lyft driver recently abandoned his passenger in of nowhere and the kid got ran over and died.

      Lyft executives seemed to be more concerned about diversity and inclusion than Uber executives, but that's just my opinion and what I see on the news.

    This is why Uber employs so many lawyers, they know situations like this are bound to happen. It's unfortunate, but it's the truth. It would be extremely difficult to know ahead of time if a driver is going to commit assault. Sometimes, they have no previous counts, but it just happens.
