Rideshare Accident?

Uber Looking to Restart Self-Driving Vehicle Tests in Pittsburgh

Published on Nov 15, 2018 at 4:47 pm in News.

Uber’s self-driving cars may be returning to Pittsburgh’s public roads. The idea of self-automated vehicles may sound like something that belongs in the far-off future, but rideshare companies like Uber already have these kinds of vehicles and are testing them today. Many people may remember the accident in Arizona last March where a woman was hit by a self-driving vehicle. Uber is new safety protocols to make self-automated cars safer.

Uber applied to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to resume testing their self-driving cars. After the March crash, their tests were suspended. While Uber returned cars that are able to drive themselves in Pittsburgh last July, they kept them out of that mode and had human drivers in control.

Uber Removes Sexual Assault Arbitration Clause

Published on May 23, 2018 at 4:02 pm in News.

The popular rideshare company Uber is changing its terms of service when it comes to dealing with issues of sexual assault. In the past, there was a clause that stated passengers who claim their drivers sexually assaulted them need to resolve the matter through arbitration. This method keeps the matter quiet and takes away the chance to have a trial by jury.

However, after CNN released an investigation that revealed Uber has 103 drivers who had been accused of sexually assaulting passengers, the cases can be brought to arbitration, meditation, or open court.

Uber’s aim is to give the survivors their voice and control back by bringing those who assaulted them to justice. They’re aiming to be more transparent about the issue and are trying to make their company safer for everyone.

Big news out of the state of Pennsylvania. According to the Attorney General’s Office, thousands of Uber drivers were unaware of an alleged data breach. Did Uber owe a duty to private citizens to inform drivers of this?

Uber knew for more than a year that a data breach potentially impacting 57 million passengers and drivers around the world had happened – but the company failed to disclose the breach until last November.
