Misbehaving with passengers has now become a regular activity for the cab drivers. This unprofessional behaviour is now coming to the public all thanks to Twitter. Yesterday a woman has accused a Uber driver of making lewd comments and misbehaving with her.
Amrita Das, a Delhi journalist share her ordeal and called for action against the driver on Twitter.
Das called driver creepy and also accused him of passing lewd comments. The incident happened when she was with her husband. She tweeted:
“Rude and creepy driver. I demand action. First he refused to turn on ac then says garmi lag rahi hai to age mere godi me baith jao. He also ended trip moments after starting to drive and forced me out. This is when I was with husband.”

Sick and tired of @Uber_Delhi drivers. No action taken even after having multiple harrowing experiences. Sack this driver!

Uber has gone worst in NCR. If u’d ask to turn on AC, they’ll lecture you on whether.
Cab drivers in their ‘prime category’ are even worst.

Uber don’t provide customer care number to contact quckly and compaint about concern.
They always say message.
Uber is not safe for girls. Uber should accept it and improve the service otherwise people bycott you#bycottuber

Such rude behaviours are in the daily record books of @UberIndia . But what actions do they take are not at all visible at all. Plus they also feel responsible just by replying to your email. I don’t understand what is their action plan in the backend to control such incidents.

Is it just to me that it appears that Uber doesn’t realise the gravity of the situation! You guys must be kidding me! The lady was with her husband when she was said this(with whatever connotation)
And responding via email suffices?

These incidents are increasing day by day. Cabs service providers must take some strict steps to ensure this unprofessionalism must be stopped immediately.
