Uber X:

Whose Car are you getting into?

Questions to ask uber x

Do you know what you’re getting into when you take uber x? Here are some questions you should be asking yourself:
What kind of insurance does Uber have for passengers?
what does Uber do with my personal information?
Why did they make me sign a waiver?
What Type of Screening is there for Uber X drivers?
Is Uber X even licensed?

The Answers:

These are all very good questions, but the truth is, we just don’t have the answers. You see, Uber hasn’t been very clear on how its service operates and what protections are in place for your safety.
Worse yet, Uber is not regulated like a taxi, so the City is not enforcing the same rules and standards for these rides as it does with the established taxi system.
