Report: Uber Adding ‘Panic Button’ For Chicago Passengers

According to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times, Uber is adding a “panic button” to its Chicago smartphone app that allows passengers to quickly alert police in the event they feel endangered by their driver. What do you think?

“It’s nice knowing Uber is willing to do everything it can to protect its customers short of properly screening its drivers.”
