More than 4000 victims of sexual violence at taxi service Lyft | News

The company faces several lawsuits next year in which female passengers will sue the company for sexual assault and rape by taxi drivers who drive for Lyft. These kinds of lawsuits are also pending against Lyft competitor Uber.

Both companies promised to make reports on violence and security incidents public in 2018. Uber did so the following year, reporting 5981 reports of a driver assaulting or raping a passenger. Lyft is now coming with that safety report.

The numbers are probably higher because the report was not necessarily made immediately after sexual violence took place. Sometimes it takes months or even years before victims dare to report. Lyft says in the report that 99% of journeys are nothing, but that doesn’t change the fact that every incident is one too many.

The safety report also reports 105 deaths from a traffic accident and 10 from physical violence.
