Uber provides drivers and passengers with an app through which both parties can connect instantaneously. Passengers searching for a ride can often find nearby Uber drivers to pick them up within minutes of beginning a search for a driver. Passengers can tip Uber drivers and review the driver inside the Uber app.
Uber drivers use the Uber app in almost every aspect of picking up, transporting, and dropping off passengers. Many Uber drivers become distracted by their mobile phones because most Uber drivers use their mobile phones to access and use the Uber app while providing rides.
Drivers using the Uber app must respond to a driver alert signal within fifteen seconds. Drivers who take longer than 15 seconds to respond to an alert may risk losing fare or being suspended as an Uber driver. In this way, the app encourages drivers to pay attention to it, regardless of what else they are doing.

Distracted driving can result in extremely dangerous situations. In fact, various types of motor vehicle accidents occur due to distracted driving. Rear-end collisions, rollovers, and head-on collisions can all arise due to a distracted driver using a mobile phone or driving while otherwise distracted.
