Uber 'Raising the Bar' on Safety

It's about damn time. Well, that is if the company is actually serious. 

During my first year at Uber, we’ve put safety at the heart of everything we do. We’ve strengthened our background checks and introduced new screening technology and policies to help make the Uber community safer. We’ve taken steps to reduce the risk of drowsy driving. And we’re working to deter misconduct by making Uber a place where the lights are always on, adding new safety features like an in-app emergency button and Trusted Contacts so there are multiple sets of eyes on each ride.
