Dial 911 directly from the Uber app. I guess this is a good idea, but if you have your phone one you already, which you do if you are using Uber, then isn't it just as easy to dial from your phone normally? Is this just a PR move by Uber?
"In April, Uber announced that it would be adding a direct way for riders to call 911 within its app in an effort to boost its flagging safety reputation. Today, the company is making that new feature live and fully operational across the US."
