Just reported my Uber driver for sexual Harrassment. He tried to grab & kiss on me in my own driveway. Fought him off and ran inside. #WTF

We’ve reached out to Williams for further comment and will update with details as we receive them, but her experience reconfirms the uselessness of Uber’s employee background checks.
Meanwhile, it sounds as if drivers working for Uber and Lyft have more than their fair share of consensual sex on the job.
Thinking of becoming a full-time pedestrian? Can’t say we blame you.
Update Dec. 20, 2:52pm ET: Uber has issued a statement: “Uber has zero tolerance for this behavior and we apologize to Ms. Williams for the awful experience. We immediately deactivated the driver and have begun an investigation.”
