In the aftermath of the murder of Samantha Josephson, a University of South Carolina student who was killed after getting in the wrong car believing it was her Uber, her father is urging riders to ask, "What's my name?"
In most ride-share apps, riders are given their driver's name, license plate number, vehicle description, and in most cases a picture of the driver, to help them find the correct car. But there is one more way to ensure you are getting into the right ride- drivers are given your name once they accept your ride request. Asking "What's my name?" before getting into a stranger's car will add one more layer of security.
