    I had the pleasure of picking up a young lady who told me of an uber driver who picked her up. She said he showered her with compliments, and at first she respectfully acknowledged and kindly thanked the driver. The driver took this to a different level and made her uncomfortable. He circled the drop off INSTEAD of dropping her off. She said she would call the police, he didn't believe it and persisted in his persuit for something more - she called and gave the authorities the license plate number discreetly and shortly after was pulled over and arrested, and police gave the passenger a ride to her destination. The driver ended up being a sexual offender/pedofile. I dont know how this passed the background check but what I do know is that my very first impression is to make my passenger feel safe and comfortable. I'm in favor of making sure the criteria for driver are like anything other job. Don't wreck it for the dudes trying to make a decent living don't you agreee?

    Do you have a link to the news of that alleged arrest? Or are you basing your post on her word alone?

    Just out of curiosity, how does one say something "discreetly" on the phone from the backseat?

    Was she a minor? How is the allegation he is a pedophile relevant to an adult pax?

    It does seem odd that she would continue to use uber after that happened.

    Amazing technology the police in that community must have if they can pinpoint the location of a vehicle simply by having a license plate number.

    I think Uber drivers should be subjected to the same level of background checking ( they are not, currently ) as limo & taxi drivers, fingerprinting, random urinalysis, etc. But, the whole reason UBer backed out of Austin was that Austin required it, and Uber wouldn't give, so they stopped service to Austin ( to the joy of local cabbies ).

    Someone told me that if you look in a mirror and say Bloody Mary three times, the next time you message Uber India you'll get a rep who doesn't speak English as well as would be expected from a customer service rep. Hey, I'm just passing on what I heard.

    But we are a nation of people that make major decisions based on hearsay, instead of taking the time to research.
