Uber launches twin drive to make Britain’s city streets safer
Uber announces partnership with the national charity RoadPeace to help reduce road danger in the UK
A second partnership with Stop Hate UK will help tackle Hate Crime in Leeds
XXX: Uber has today announced two new partnerships to help improve safety support for riders and drivers on its platform and city streets across the UK.
Uber is partnering with RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims in the UK, to provide victim support to those that experience road safety incidents on our platform. RoadPeace will offer practical and emotional support to riders and drivers who have been involved in road crashes on the Uber platform through RoadPeace’s specialised support helpline.
Uber has also announced a partnership to encourage the reporting of Hate Crime in Leeds with Stop Hate UK
Uber will also share expert safety tips with drivers across the city.
Nick Simmons, RoadPeace CEO said: “There are 5 deaths every day caused by road crashes and around 100 serious injuries. That is completely unacceptable. RoadPeace’s first priority has always been supporting victims, but support also includes campaigning against society’s tolerance of road death and injury. We are very pleased to be working with Uber to raise awareness and increase resources in these important areas of the charity’s work”.
Bex Xiao, Head of Customer Experience at Uber said: “The safety of the riders and drivers who use our platform every day is a fundamental priority. The important partnerships we’re announcing today are the latest step in our drive to make city streets across the UK safe for everyone.”
