China's Didi Chuxing Logs 80,000 Safety Alerts in First Quarter, But Who Is to Blame? China's Didi Chuxing Logs 80,000 Safety Alerts in First Quarter, But Who Is to Blame?

(Yicai Global) June 26 --  Didi Chuxing Technology, China's largest ride-hailing firm, has received  more than 80,000 calls regarding security concerns during rides in the  first quarter of this year, while most of the wrongdoings involved  passengers starting a fight with their drivers.

Some 121 calls of the  total were confirmed to involve a violation of law, according to the  first safety transparency report that the Beijing-based firm released  yesterday. The total amount of 80,000 calls equals to 0.4 basis points  of all rides delivered on the platform, and 35 percent of them were  considered as false complaints. 

Didi  suspended its carpooling service last year after two female passengers  were killed by drivers. The first murder of a Didi driver took place in  northern China's Changde last March.

Violation of public  security was the most common reason for people to make those 121 phone  calls. Over three-quarters of these calls involved passengers assaulting  their drivers. Twelve of them were about mutual fights, and seven  involved drivers attacking their passengers.

Ten of the 121 incidents  led to criminal investigation. Among them, four cases were about drivers  assaulting passengers, and four the other way. 

Didi will resolutely  resist any physical conflicts and violations of others' personal safety  during rides, as well as help the police investigate and collect  evidence for criminal cases, it said in the report.
