With the aim of providing greater protection tools to users, the Congress will propose a law that will oblige taxi apps to have a “panic button”, which can be activated by the person in case of being in danger to alert the company and the Police.
This information was advanced to Gestión by congressman Miguel Elías of Fuerza Popular, who is president of the Consumer Defense Commission, and it will be presented today.
“Another additional proposal will be to force application companies to give the possibility that the user can share with a relative or friend the travel route and movement of the car. It should be noted that some apps already give this possibility”, said Gestión.
Elías said also that there are other measures that have been discussed seek to hold responsible taxi app companies in the case of damages suffered by the passengers.
