Uber Drivers Will Soon Be Watched Much More Closely

Life is like an Uber ride: You never know what you're gonna get.

Well, that may not be the case anymore!

There is a new background check system coming for Uber drivers. Gus Fuldner is the vice president of safety and insurance for the ride share company and released a statement today announcing that driver's will be undergoing  continuous background checks.

"Safety is essential to Uber and we want to ensure drivers continue to meet our standards on an ongoing basis. This new continuous checking technology will strengthen our screening process and improve safety."

Fuldner did say that the new background system has seen some success: 25 drivers have been removed as a result of the system.
