Uber takes a new step by introducing new features to its application to ensure the safety of its users less than a week after the killing of an American girl who had taken over her killer car, believing it to be the Uber car that she rented.
The company announced that it is currently working on a range of new features that will protect the safety of its users, in order to help passengers avoid fake drivers who claim to be affiliated with them, including the right to identify the right vehicle, Check Your Ride "before the car reaches the point of capture. The company will also provide safe pick-up areas for university students, which are well lit and monitored by the security authorities.
According to the news, these new features are officially being introduced across the United States within a few days, the Daily Mail reported.
A 21-year-old student at the University of Southern California, Samantha Josephson, was killed last week by an erroneous trip to Uber.
