In honour of UN Global Road Safety Week, we’re joining the global safety community to speak up and raise awareness about the dangers of unsafe driving.
The World Health Organization states that inappropriate speed is a key risk factor for road traffic collisions, deaths and injuries. Exceeding the speed limit, or traveling too fast for road conditions can increase your chances of being in a crash. It’s harder for vehicles to safely stop or react to changing road conditions at unsafe speeds, so traveling at the appropriate speed can help drivers successfully avoid crashes.
Whether it’s buckling up or keeping to the local speed limits, we can all do our part in keeping our roads safer. At Uber, we’re constantly working to help make our roads safer by developing innovative products that aim to increase transparency, accountability and peace of mind for everyone using the Uber app. Find out more below:
These are just a few of the ways that we’re applying technology to improve safety – and to help drivers to optimise their vehicle to improve safety both for themselves and for their riders.
