Uber Drivers Busted For Distracted Driving

Posted on September 2, 2015

Some are saying the technology that makes Uber so popular can also be a recipe for disaster because drivers are using their electronic devices on the road.

Attorney Christopher Dolan represents Huan Liu in a lawsuit against Uber. She was crossing the street in San Francisco with her children in 2013 when an Uber driver plowed into them, killing her six-year-old daughter, Sofia.

"It’s a system that requires distracted driving,” Dolan told Inside Edition. “It requires the driver to interact with that phone. The driver was looking at his phone, and not where he was going because that's what the job required him to do. He was not paying attention to them; he was paying attention to the Uber app.”
