Uber Executive Summary Report: Sexual violence is all too common in our society. In the US, nearly 44% of women and almost 25% of men will be the victim of sexual violence in their lifetime. For 2017 and 2018 combined -- Non-Consensual Kissing of a Non-Sexual Body Part was reported to occur in about 1 in every 2,000,000 completed trips. Attempted Non-Consensual Sexual Penetration was reported to occur in about 1 in 4,000,000 completed trips. This category covers a wide range of reports and includes attempted clothing removal and incident reports that are fragmented or incomplete due to memory loss or lack of event recall. Instances of Non-Consensual Touching of a Sexual Body Part were reported to occur in about 1 in every 800,000

Actually, 3000 out of 1.3 BILLION are excellent numbers.

But of course the common man/woman expect it to be zero.

Honest question. How is this in comparison to regulated actual taxi services? And in addition how much crime has been caused by Uber drivers only being available when it is convenient for them?

235 reports of rape.
280 reports of attempted rape
5981 reports of sexual assault.

Burying the actual numbers is something only a rape apologist would do.

Oh boy, now we have to listen to the bleeding hearts who live in a fantasy world where they believe they can get 100% compliance. With these numbers being so incredibly low, there is no issue here. The people who go through the incidents should follow the standard law enforcement procedures like everyone else does with any other matter involving possibly illegal actions. But of course the people who seem to not be able to grasp reality will whine and cry like PC babies and force Uber to have to add more costs, thus making their services cost more.

Yep, just like them. It's worth ensuring the education gets out there and school policies and plans are updated accordingly to keep these at a minimum. But the number is definitely nowhere near being a national emergency, and taking our attention away from more serious issues with more serious impacts to the nation is just a "flavor of the month" reaction that the media incites and people with no foresight just blindly follow along. It's like someone wakes up in the morning and reads the first headline and bases their opinions just on that one headline. Then the next morning they wake up and do the same thing. These numbers do not support that type of response.

There it is, the underlying force behind the conservative ideology. Its ok fine if Americans are dying everyday. We shouldn't be bothered to do anything int response.

Except that school shootings in America are at the maximum in the modern world, and arguably, the entire world.
