The rideshare company Uber is testing a new policy that would require drivers to wear a safety helmet when riding in the US.
The move follows a spate of accidents in which drivers who donned the safety goggles were injured, and Uber has come under fire for not doing enough to ensure that its drivers have the proper equipment.
At least one driver who wore the goggles has now sued the company, alleging that the policy violates the drivers’ civil rights and that it was a violation of federal civil rights law.
Uber’s policy, which was first reported by The Verge, would require that drivers wear the goggles for the first time when they arrive at their destination.
Drivers would have to wear them for an additional 30 minutes every day if they have an accident.
After the initial accident, drivers would have until 6 p.m. local time, and the policy would apply to drivers who had been in the service for 30 days or more.
If drivers are injured while in the process of getting to their destination, the driver would be required by law to wear the safety glasses for at least a day.
Uber is also considering requiring drivers to have a seatbelt and wear a seat belt-like device when entering the vehicle, or to have someone else wear one when exiting the vehicle.
Drivers would also be required not to park in “dangerous locations,” which could include an intersection, a parking garage, or even an unsecured parking space, in the company’s cars.
Uber has been working on its policy for more than a year, and it’s not the first major service to mandate the goggles.
In September, Google announced that it would be rolling out its own safety goggles for its drivers.
It’s unclear how long Uber’s current policy would last.
The company had previously announced it was going to introduce a safety policy for all drivers starting in the second half of 2018, but Uber had yet to roll out the policy at the time of publication.
The company has also faced criticism from some safety experts, including John Delaney, director of the Transportation Research Board, who has said that the company has a “lack of empathy” for its passengers.
In addition to the goggles, Uber has a policy that requires drivers to use a helmet at all times, but it has not made any moves to implement mandatory safety glasses.
Uber has faced increasing scrutiny after it was revealed that it’s been colluding with taxi drivers in its efforts to lure customers, and that its fleet of self-driving cars is unsafe and prone to human error.
Uber has faced criticism for the speed with which it has taken on the challenge of developing autonomous cars, and some lawmakers have proposed a bill to require that it equip its drivers with safety goggles.
