Uber will track drivers' behaviour

Travel News 11 Jul 2016

Uber is adding safety features to its driver app to encourage better driving habits. These include a speed display, reminders to take breaks and daily reports tracking such metrics as harsh braking and rapid acceleration. The app also now has motion-detection capabilities that alert drivers to leave their mobile devices mounted on their dashboards rather than holding them while driving. Uber will introduce the features to the app in 11 cities in the next few weeks and plans to release the update more broadly later.
