Where can I inform myself on my safety when using Uber, I fear I might be kidnapped on one of the rides. I know it probably will never happen but how can you defend yourself in case such incident where to happen?
Let’s See. You have a smartphone, because you had to have one to call Uber. In they absolutely remote event that anything untoward, such as a kidnapping, should begin to happen you would simply take your index finger and tap out the number 911 on the phone app on your smart phone.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
This isn’t a legal question, but I’ll do my best nevertheless. In addition to using your mobile phone to call 911 you have a few other options available to you.
First, you can check the App Store for your device and locate an app that has a “hold until safe” feature.
Second, you can take a self-defense class so that you can lean how to defend yourself and not be fearful.
Finally, if all else fails and you still don’t feel comfortable using ride-share services, look into alternative ways to get around.
Familiarize yourself with the app. They have many safeguards, including a panic button that immediately notifies authorities if something goes wrong during the ride.
