15 Weirdest Things That People Have Left Behind In An Uber

A bulletproof vest?!?

Uber riders can be a forgetful bunch, and sometimes they leave behind some truly bizarre items.

The ride-hailing company has revealed details of the weirdest things its customers have misplaced in its drivers’ vehicles — from violins and capes to lasers, lottery tickets and bulletproof vests.

Cell phones, rings and keys are the three most forgotten items listed on Uber’s new “Lost & Found Index.” And it names Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco as North America’s most forgetful cities.

Uber shared the data Wednesday, amid ongoing controversy over its reported sexist culture and diversity issues
