Ridesharing services like Uber are convenient and popular, but you will have read of the “fake Uber” attacks and other safety concerns so on the principle of “safety first” always take a few common-sense precautions when using them.

Before you get into your next Uber have a good read of their “Driving safety forward” page here. Pay particular attention to the 3 steps you should always follow before you enter the vehicle in the “Check your ride, every time you ride” section halfway down the page. Also, be aware of the safety features available to you in the app itself – they are listed in the “Designing a safer ride” section.

Then watch Uber’s “Safety Never Stops” video on YouTube.
