NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In the wake of Samantha Josephson’s tragic murder, Uber is reminding riders to be careful before getting into a for-hire vehicle.
The company says when you book a ride, you receive a picture of the driver, his or her name, and the make and model of their car.
It will also include the license plate number of the vehicle.
Once you’re in the car, you can track your route via the app’s GPS to make sure you are headed in the right direction.
Uber adds that if you ever feel you’re in an emergency situation, call 911 immediately.
