Many people like myself use Uber and Lyft to get home from a Holiday party or a night on the town. However, Uber and Lyft passengers should remain vigilant. Especially women traveling by themselves. Another incident of a Uber driver sexually assaulting a passenger is in the news.
In this recent case a Houston, Texas Uber driver picked up a woman who ended up falling asleep in the Uber driver's vehicle. The Uber driver then parked his car in a parking lot. The woman awoke to the terrifying experience of the Uber driver fondling her as she was asleep. The case is ongoing, so the details are scant. The driver is contesting the allegations in court.
