Uber Officially Rolls Out Its New Safety Toolkit
Uber announced the official launch of its overhauled safety toolkit on Tuesday. Complete with the ability to contact an ADT operator and text 911, the safety toolkit is trying to make your ride "just a bit safer." The company has experimented with the widespread rollout of these features since 2019 in Los Angeles, Minnesota, and Indiana, and the newest launch is its biggest effort in the realm of safety. Recall that, in 2017, London threatened to remove Uber from the city, but the company launched a more rigorous screening process for drivers to avoid expulsion. Uber must continue to update its transportation structure, but many users wonder if added safety features will be enough.
