Uber rule bans broad­cast­ing pas­sen­ger im­ages

Belleville News-Democrat - - News -

The ride-hail­ing com­pany Uber in­sti­tuted a new guide­line pro­hibit­ing driv­ers from broad­cast­ing pas­sen­gers’ im­ages amid pri­vacy con­cerns af­ter a St. Louis-area driver posted hun­dreds of videos.

The new guide­line was put in place at the end of Septem­ber, an Uber spokesman said Thurs­day. It al­lows driv­ers to use video cam­eras, dash cam­eras and other record­ing de­vices for se­cu­rity pur­poses but not to broad­cast them.

Uber said the guide­line was in place when a Phoenix driver posted video from Oct. 29 of Ot­tawa Se­na­tors play­ers in­sult­ing the team and an as­sis­tant coach.
