Restricting women to ride at night? Drips and Announcement: Both men and women will be out of service after 20:00


Sina Technology News on the evening of November 7th, Didi Chuanfeng announced that during the small-scale trial operation of the windmill, in order to ensure the safety of the trial product service, the time for all the shuttle users to provide services is adjusted to 5:00- 20:00. Didi announced yesterday that it will continue to operate the windmill business in seven cities including Harbin, Taiyuan, Beijing and Nantong on November 20. At that time, Didi also limited the service time of the shuttle, providing only 5:00-23:00, short-haul (within 50 km) service in the city. The service time for female users is 5:00-20:00. The different service hours for male and female users raises the controversy over whether the provision is suspected of gender discrimination. Some netizens believe that the service time of male and female users should be the same, otherwise there will be discrimination suspects; some netizens think that this is a security protection measure for female users. Today, Didi responded that in order to ensure the safety of the trial product service to the greatest extent, the time for all shuttle users to provide services is adjusted to 5:00-20:00. Didi said that the trial operation time is adjusted to 5:00-20:00, which is definitely not the perfect solution, but it is indeed the choice made by Didi in various conditions. According to statistics on past safety complaints of Drips, it was found that the number of complaints related to sex was 5% to 5:00-20:00, respectively, between 20:00-23:00 and 23:00-5:00. 465%. Didi said that it has also been considered to adjust to 23:00, but based on the safety data mentioned above, Drip decided to choose a relatively conservative solution, please understand. The following is the full text of the drop-down announcement: After listening to the opinions of all parties, we decided to adjust the downwind trial operation rules. Yesterday we announced the plan for the trial operation of the windmill, one of which is about the user night service rules (female users 5-20 points) Male users 5-23 points), which triggered discussion and criticism. Before the announcement of the plan, we did not comment on the rules for the public, and did not fully listen to the opinions of all parties. At the same time, we apologize for the lack of communication and improper communication. After listening to the opinions and suggestions of all parties, we decided to adjust this rule. During the small-scale trial operation, we will ensure the safety of trial service products to the greatest extent, and the time for all shuttle users to be adjusted to 5 :00-20:00. During the trial operation (no information service fee), the product service rules may be iteratively optimized, and there will be various inconveniences in use. Please understand and give us suggestions. Once again, I sincerely apologize for the improper communication yesterday. Please believe us, and our security efforts in the past year. The original intention of Didi is also to hope that all users and drivers can travel beautifully and go home safely. However, in the face of complex safety problems in the smooth travel, we do have a lot of unsatisfactory and unprepared places. We will continue to improve in the days to come, listen to opinions, and go all out to make a trip. ——— In addition, we also want to share with you our thoughts on the safety of the ride: In this trial operation plan, the rider has permanently downlined the personalized avatar, gender, long-term evaluation and other related user privacy. All sensitive information; before the ride, the owner needs to be identified by the face, and both parties need to carry out information verification before boarding the car. In long-distance travel scenarios, the number of face recognitions of the owner of the vehicle is increased, the user is reminded to set an emergency contact, and the journey is automatically recorded. The shuttle user access link has now realized the full real name. The rider and the express train driver must perform the three-certification, background screening and face recognition, and the untrustworthy executor will not be able to register as a rider. According to the statistics of past safety complaints, we found that the number of complaints related to sex was 4:00-23:00 and 465-20:00 respectively between 20:00-23:00 and 23:00-5:00. %. According to the data released by the China Judicial Big Data Research Institute in 2018, in the taxi and online car industry, nighttime is also the peak period of criminal cases. In 2017, there were 52 criminal cases involving taxi drivers at night, accounting for 30% of the total crimes committed by taxi drivers, and 9 crimes involving net driver drivers at night. 50%. We know that too many rules will hurt the car and passenger experience, but the platform still needs to fully guard against the uncertainties of human nature, and do everything possible to keep the security risks out. Since the shuttle is a private car ride, the owner and the passenger are mutually assisted and shared. The car belongs to the private space of the owner. It is impossible to force the installation of camera equipment like the express train and the offline safety training for the owner to improve the night safety. limited. The trial operation time is adjusted to 5:00-20:00, which is definitely not the perfect solution, but it is indeed the choice we weigh under various conditions. We have also considered the unified adjustment to 23:00, but based on the above As for the safety data, we still decided to choose a relatively conservative program, please understand. In addition, providing equal services to users is a principle that we should abide by. We should provide services in a unified manner during the same period of time or temporarily not provide services. We are not well thought out, and we make mistakes in decision-making. Thanks to all the friends who criticize, care for and help the drop-off, we will seriously study the opinions of everyone and do our utmost to provide safe, economical, smooth and comfortable travel services. *Data source: “Thematic Report on Judicial Big Data on Crimes in the Process of Network Cars and Traditional Taxi Services”, China Judicial Big Data Research Institute under the Supreme People’s Court, September 2018.
