Uber bans passengers from flirting in attempt to solve sexual misconduct issue

Uber has updated its guidelines to ban passengers from flirting and vomiting, amongst other misconduct.

These rules come following a year in which the taxi app company has been plagued by allegations of sexual misconduct. In March, Buzzfeed News obtained internal data, which revealed that the company had recorded five rape claims and almost 170 cases of sexual assault between December 2012 and August 2015.
