NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 14: An Uber car waits for a client in Manhattan a day after it was announced that Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick will take a leave of absence as chief executive on June 14, 2017 in New York City. The move came after former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. and his law firm, Covington & Burling, released 13 pages of recommendations compiled as part of an investigation of sexual harassment at the ride-hailing car service.

Uber Drivers May Soon Be Able to Legally Record Audio on Riders During Trips Uber has come under fire lately as cases of rape and sexual assault increase.

In an effort to make both passengers and drivers feel safer, Uber has plans to roll out a new feature that will record the audio from both passengers and riders during a trip.

Currently being tested in Brazil and Mexico, the passenger would be able to retrieve the audio from a trip once it ends. T

he rider can then send the audio to Uber and it can be used for investigating an incident.

It can also be shared with law enforcement. There could be a setback with the feature coming to the United States.

Laws in the US around consent to being recorded vary from state to state and can pose a setback to the feature landing on the US Uber platform.

How do you feel about this new feature?
