Coming back to work from an early afternoon meeting, we noticed that our Uber had an Emergency Button in case of boo-boo moments! Later, our host explained that the mandate from the government is now in practice.
30 Second Window:
- The red emergency button directly connects you with the Police helpline with special notice for the women helpline cases.
- As mandated all app based taxis such as, Uber, Olacabs & TaxiForSure among others will need to get GPS. Along with meters & panic buttons installed for safety of passengers.
- So, all you gotta do is press the button & take comfort in the fact that the police isn’t that far…
Check out for the emergency button in your taxi the next time. Safe travels!
