Based on reviews posted on popular review sites, UBER performs very well in terms of safety features relative to other ride sharing stores.

One reviewer on techcrunch.com said UBER performs well on safety features relative to its peers. You can read the full review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

A majority of the additions are contained within a handy Safety Center landing page inside the app. The section features a bunch of insight into the company’s process for screening its drivers, Uber’s on-going partnerships with law enforcement and the company’s insurance policies. There’s also a new Emergency button that connects riders directly to a 911 operator from inside the app.

One reviewer on forbes.com said UBER performs well on safety features relative to its peers. You can read the full review here. Here's a brief quote from this review:

Uber already has several safety measures in place within the app, including Share My Trip. The feature allows travelers to share their route with friends or family. There's also insurance protection for every ride and more info (like license plate numbers and car color) to help verify the car you hailed is the one you get into. Here are Uber’s new safety features, as stated on their website ... Safety Center, Trusted Contacts, 911 Assistance, Annual Background Checks for drivers.

Based on a review posted on gizmodo.com, UBER was rated as fairly average for safety features relative to competing ride sharing stores. Check out the entire review here. From this review:

The first feature listed in the post is called Ride Check. It uses GPS and “other sensors in the driver’s smartphone,” Uber says, to identify whether you’ve been in an accident. If Uber detects that you might have been in a crash, it’ll send both the user and the driver its Safety Toolkit via the app, asking if everything is okay and giving them the option to call 911. The blog post indicated that this Safety ToolKit, as well as the company’s panic button, will expand to all drivers across the U.S. and Canada.
