Uber may be designing a feature that allows riders include drivers as a “preferred” so they can ride with them one more time in the future. Jane Manchun Wong (the app researcher) disclosed the palpable app inclusion this week, claiming that Uber was actually trialing the function. No other info has been offered so far.
This might be a huge modification for the app—and certainly for Uber in general. On one hand, this type of function can pose a privacy issue for drivers, but if well applied, can assist drive a sense of security and confidence amongst riders. Almost everybody who employs the service has a tale to tell about an earlier driver from Uber, so if there is no method of straight-up stopping specific people, this feature will at least make certain you get a driver you are happy with.
On a related note, since a chiming dashboard notification is not sufficient to get youngsters to buckle up, Chevrolet earlier launched a new function that bans drivers from getting out of park till their seat belt is buckled. The “Buckle to Drive” system comprises audible and visible alerts, and the firm claims it is an industry first. It only operates when Teen Driver mode is on and it will be a feature in the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu, Traverse, and Colorado.
The firm does have a convincing reason to include the feature. As per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, seat belts are the best method drivers can safeguard themselves in an accident, and youngsters constantly have the lowest seat belt usage rate.
Buckle to Drive is based on other Teen Driver safety functions by Chevrolet such as muting the radio automatically until the front passenger and driver’s seat belts are buckled and letting parents to arrange speed warnings.
