Uber spreading like a decease around the world not only in the field of transportation but also as a company with the most sex offender, criminals and rapist drivers. Recently in New Delhi, India one of the Uber’s drivers allegedly raped a woman while she was on her way back home from a dinner. There have been numerous incidents reported against Uber drivers and finally the New Delhi government has kicked Uber out of Delhi, now Uber can’t operate in New Delhi, India. This is not the first time Uber has been on spot light for its poor security and safety checks, putting innocent people in danger. The company claims that it does employ people with criminal records. Incidents of sexual harassment and rape have been recorded in New York, Germany, UK and many other countries of the world.
It seems like the main concern of the company is just to make money and not considering the safety of the general public. Most of the people in US are now moving away from Uber and looking for other alternatives like Lyft and limousine companies.
“I used to use Uber a lot in the past but ever since i heard stories about Uber drivers sexually harassing their clients i stopped using it”, says Sandra, 27, from downtown Manhattan, New York.
Sandra and many other like her fear their safety while using Uber. The New York Taxi and Limousine Commission is harsh on limousine and taxi drivers but they are reluctant to take action against Uber. It seems like TLC can only enforce there power against the weak and powerless against a corporation like Uber.
