    That's great accomplishing so much on their 280th day of their 180-days-to-change initiative. .

    I've seen other smaller apps use this feature as their niche, "extra safety through panic button" and now Uber will have the same. It seems like Uber is just slowly consolidating all the small niche rideshare companies. I don't think anyone else has a chance. Do you agree?

    I was all ready to make fun of Uber as I started reading this, but I'm now thinking this is pretty respectable

      Let me take a shot. 

      The reason for including a 911-button is so they stop getting calls from their customers

        The 911 button will be their most frequently used feature as every driver will need it at least every month of driving an Uber and being attacked by highly privileged passengers n
