A woman who says she was 'kidnapped' and gang raped by her Lyft driver and two other men while being held at gunpoint is one of five women who have launched lawsuits against the ride-sharing company - months after it was hit by 14 similar suits.  

Alison Turkos, 31, claimed in her suit that in 2017, her Lyft driver 'kidnapped' her at gunpoint and drove her from Brooklyn to an isolated park in New Jersey. Once there, he and two other men raped her while she was held at gunpoint. 

Turkos reported her alleged rape to Lyft, and received a 'canned apology' after her terrifying 80-minute ordeal. She was also told she'd need to pay for the ride, and that she would 'unpaired' with the driver who allegedly took part in the rape. The company claims that Turkos reported the incident as an 'indirect route'.

She then reported the brutal assault to the NYPD and FBI  who have labeled the incident a human trafficking case.

When these men are tried, and found guilty, castrate them; jail time and financial compensation should come from them also.

Apparently,  LYFT is a "setup " for the masses excluding the 1% ,& possibly the "bougiè".

Please,  I tried it for 3 months and I  am sometimes extra careful on the riders I pick up. MOST of those rape cases I can take an educated guess that they were losers and carried pedophilia suspects before driving for Lyft.

In conclusion,  in regular cabbies or Uber/Lyft, be alert to your surroundings. AS A RIDER I CARRIES MY GUN AS WELL AS A DRIVER. PERIOD (I PRACTICE AT THE GUN RANGE EVERY 2 WEEKS)

WOW.....I use Lyft and never felt unsafe but I tell you one thing.....I will pull my razor out on a driver in a hot second if he even try to play with me.  I ain't nobody's victim.
