Uber gave one of its users a 10 dollar credit after the man witness his driver engaging in a sex act while driving. Yeesh. I mean, sometimes it’s easy to forget that Uber is just hitch-hiking with your phone instead of your thumb, then this happens.
Anwer Manuel posted a video of his Uber driver at first making out with a female passenger in the front seat, then she suddenly performs oral sex on the driver. Manuel said he saw the woman sitting in the front seat when he got in, but he didn’t request an Uber Pool.
If it were me, I wouldn’t get into a regular Uber with an extra person in the front seat. That person is either a driving instructor or an accomplice.
Manuel posted the video to Uber’s Facebook page along with his story saying —
As we pulled off the female in the front (who was clearly on drugs) attempted to open the door and could not even sit straight as the vehicle was in motion. She then began to grope him and grab him. … She then proceeded to perform oral sex. This was my last straw. I asked the driver to drop me off. Since I’ve contacted uber and they refunded me for trip and gave me a “$10 credit”.
This story points to some of the biggest issues that Uber is facing.
Customers have no resources to complain to Uber about their drivers. There’s no phone number to call Uber, just e-mail and social media.
Another important point is that Uber’s background check for drivers is unbelievably shoddy.
In 2015, the city of Houston criticized Uber for hiring a driver who was on the sex offender registry who later raped a passenger. The man was able to pass Uber’s simple background check system.
Uber says the driver in the video has been fired and that they are looking into Manuel’s complaint.
“The behavior of this former driver is appalling and is not tolerated on the Uber app,” a spokesperson said. “As soon as this situation was reported to us, we immediately removed this driver’s access.”
