Uber in Kenya along with AAK to promote safe driving

Posted on : Monday , 4th December 2017

 Uber has proposed a series of Safety information sessions for partner drivers across Middle-East and Africa, partnering with Road Safety experts and Police representatives, to plan and offer Safety tips for drivers and also give them an opportunity to talk about personal and road safety challenges with topic specialists.

Uber in Kenya, collaborating with Automotive Association of Kenya (AAK) has proposed a series of 30 Driver’s Safety Tips workshops that will take place in Nairobi and allow its partner drivers to concentrate on defensive driving, first aid, traffic rules and vehicle maintenance.

Such activities will serve as knowledge exchange imparting tips to driver-partners

 “The safety of riders and drivers using the Uber app is our priority. Similar to the Riders Safety Tips we launched a couple of months ago, the Driver Safety Tips are designed to help drivers feel empowered to be safe and make safe decisions before, during, and after every ride.,” said Loic Amado, Uber’s General Manager in East Africa on the first driver’s safety workshop held at its Nairobi Greenlight Hub.

 “Uber is constantly working to make cities better and that includes listening to those who protect and serve our communities every day. We listened to and incorporated feedback from law enforcement and safety subject matter experts in developing these tips to ensure drivers follow local traffic laws and help protect pedestrians,” said Mr. Amado.

Philip Kimeu, the AAK Head of Driving School said, “We are excited to partner with Uber Kenya and equip and apprise existing and incoming drivers with road safety tips. Through this partnership, we will be able to promote safe and responsible driving while facilitating meaningful livelihood for youth.”

Uber has upraded the security of its riders and driver-partners through features like GPS tracked trips, a rating and feedback system that guarantees two-way accountability and information provided to riders about the car and driver such as the driver-partners name, photo, license plate number and the model of the car.
