Twitter is buzzing with jaw-dropping stories that shed light on women’s safety when using companies like Uber and Lyft. @sighjunwa, in a tweet recounts her encounter.
It all started when an Uber driver, who had given her a ride to work several weeks ago, unexpectedly appeared at her workplace.
To her surprise, the driver knew her name and given direct access to her location.
This sparked a chain of similar shocking stories, including one from @sparkyblackgurl who talks about her trip to California. Things took a sinister turn during a trip to the scenic Napa Valley.
He Sent Shivers Down Her Spine
Her driver started an eerie conversation that sent shivers down her spine before deciding to detour through unfamiliar, dark backroads.
Although she eventually made it back to her resort unscathed, the terrifying experience left a mark.
If you ever find yourself trapped in the backseat of a vehicle, simply pull down the middle seat armrest and make your way into the trunk.
Plan an Escape Route
According to @captuncatholic, a latch inside the trunk can be used to escape in emergencies such as fires or other life-threatening situations.
The need for enhanced security measures and strict regulations has never been more apparent.
