I had a feeling once it got big we'd start to hear about the crazies using it for their gratification. Craigslist, anyone? Good thing Uber is worth that much. They're going to have to pay out millions in civil lawsuits.
Curious, can a woman call for Uber and request a female driver? It's possible Uber may have to start specifically HIRING women just for this purpose. To put women at ease, so that when women need a ride, they can HAVE a women driver and they don't have to worry about sexual assault. (I mean it's a very sad state of affairs that I even have to type this, but if this is what it takes to turn Uber around, here and overseas, they may have to do just that.)
What happens when the sickos start requesting female drivers as well?

Still waiting on New Delhi to ban public buses...
Ironically, I've been in the final stages of my application to become an Uber driver for awhile (I have procrastination issues). Not a rapist, luckily, just an insomniac.
I'm blown away by the idea of someone being so sexually depraved they think they can force intercourse on someone & not have it come back on them.
