Help us support our Chennai Safety Kings!

November 19, 2017 / Chennai

We are all familiar with the quote ‘With great power comes great responsibility’. Our driver partners are our super heroes and we have taken the initiative to ensure that each and every one of them is aware of all the responsibilities that lie in their hands before, during and after a trip.  We care about the community we serve and would like to brush up pro tips for our Chennai Safety Kings a.k.a our driver partners. 


What can you do as a rider to help us achieve our objective?

You can keep an eye out for small details that can help our drivers be safer and more attentive to issues that were not given much importance earlier.
Your minor efforts will ensure better trip experiences for millions of people across the city. All you need to do is proactively rate our driver-partners with a 6-star compliment at the end of each trip whenever you notice a safety element being followed during your trip. Remember: safety only begins with teamwork.  

Our efforts towards this begins with our driver-partner implementing either of the below (even both):

  • Using a phone mount
  • Wearing a seat belt

Here’s what we have lined up and we need your immense support to kick start this campaign:

  1. Encourage them to avoid answering phone calls or making phone calls during a trip.
  2. Inform them about how it makes you trust Uber to be a reliable option.
  3. Check if they are using a phone mount or are wearing a seat belt.

What do you need to do at the end of ride?

Simple! If you had noticed your driver using a phone mount or wearing a seat belt, then rate the trip with a 6-star compliment. This way you compliment your driver too and be a part of the Chennai Safety Kings club. 


Your response and inputs is valuable to us. To extend our love for your support we have a lot of amazing rewards in store for you! Our driver partners will be going through extensive trainings for this period and we would love to share real time updates with you. Don’t forget to keep an eye out on the Uber app and your mailbox for interesting stories and updates.
