Here is a detailed overview of our safety practices in California, including our approach to screening drivers. We believe that Uber is a safe, reliable way to get from A to B. Our technology makes it possible to focus on safety for riders and driver-partners before, during and after a trip. That said, no means of transportation can ever be 100% safe. Accidents and incidents will always happen. And when it comes to screening, every system has its flaws. That’s partly because past behavior may not accurately predict how people will behave in the future, but also due to the fact that no system in the U.S has a one hundred percent accurate record of the past. That’s why we continue to invest in new technologies that help keep riders and drivers safe before, during, and after every ride.
