CAPE TOWN – Uber is testing ways to tighten security over the next month.
The ride-hailing app is now using a dash camera with a number of its Cape Town drivers.
The digital cameras, mounted on the dashboard, will record what happens in front of the car, as well as inside it.
Recently, there have been a number of criminal incidents involving the Uber service.
Besides appointing a new head of security for its Africa operations, the company also plans to update its app to improve driver and passenger safety.
