    Online cab service provider Uber on Thursday announced new features in its driver’s app which are aimed at predicting, preventing and reducing the number of crashes on the road.

    The new features include daily reports to the drivers about how their driving patterns compare to the other drivers in their city with suggestions on how to provide a safer ride.

    It will also include messages in the app informing drivers that mounting their phone on the dashboard is safer than holding the phone in their hands.

    Speed display in the app alerts drivers about the speed of their vehicle and reminders to the drivers about the importance of taking a break when they need it.

    “While alcohol is the leading cause of traffic crashes, there are other behaviors that can put people at risk, including distracted and unsafe driving,” said Dorothy Chou, Head of Safety for Public Policy, Uber, in a statement.

    These features will be rolled out for drivers in Bengaluru over the next few weeks, with more cities coming soon.
