CNN said analysis comes from an in-depth review of federal court records and county court databases for 20 major U.S. cities and police reports. The real number of sexual assaults by Uber drivers or for drivers of other rideshare companies is not publicly available.

In one case a woman from Miami told CNN, that she went to a bar with her friend. Later she took an Uber back home where she left her daughter with her grandmother. She said she was fainted along the way and woke up the next morning in her bed at home with her pants and underwear on the floor.

“You are pretty much hitchhiking with strangers,” she told CNN. “How many people is it going to take to get assaulted before something is done?”
