Were You Sexually Assaulted In An Uber or Lyft ride?
Assault can take many forms but it’s quite surprising how much trust we put in a perfect stranger. Uber and Lyft are not immune to sexual predators driving for their company. Taking advantage of people just trying to get to their destination safe and sound is horrible. The last thing you expect is for your Lyft driver to sexually assault you.
Anyone should be able to enjoy their night out and let loose. Our use of rideshare applications to help us enjoy our leisure time without worrying about hurting anyone or getting a DUI. The consequences of driving under the influence affect many lives. The only thing you should ever have to worry about after a nice night out is a hangover in the morning.
In late 2019, Uber released it’s US Safety Report and has committed to improving the safety and secure transportation of its customers.
If you were a victim of a rideshare sexual harassment or assault issue, make sure to report it in your app and call us immediately. Being intoxicated means you are unable to consent to sex. Both parties must consent in order for any sexual activity to occur. Unconscious, partially coherent, or intoxicated people cannot consent to sex. Consent requires an audible response. If you can’t say NO, you are not consenting.
It’s time to hold sexual predators and sexual harassers responsible and accountable for their actions. You can help stop these awful people! You are not alone!
