Victims of motor vehicle accidents in Massachusetts, and especially Greater Boston where there is a higher concentration of ride sharing services, have a new, helpful and potentially life saving feature in their Uber app.
Uber Now Has 911 Built Into Uber App in Massachusetts
In a great step toward more safety in accidents, Uber has initiated a new program, to start in Massachusetts before any other state, which is an updated 911 feature built into the Uber app. Upon calling 911 thorough the app, the app sends the 911 operator the vehicle information, license place, and the location of the vehicle automatically. Thus, if you need to make a 911 call, you don’t even need to provide that information – first responders will have it instantly. And they can find you faster, especially on busy streets.
