Uber is a billion dollar entity that owes its success to the popularity and massive growth of Smartphone technology. Almost everyone owns or has used a Smartphone in one way or another. An Uber app lets you simply call up a ride wherever, and whenever. What’s more, Uber has a variety of vehicles depending on your price point, and drivers are rated by clients, making it easier to find someone with a great track record instantly. However, no amount of technology can take away the negligence that one can be exposed to by an errant Uber driver that doesn’t obey traffic rules or takes risks on the roads in order to make more money by carrying more people on any given day.
