Uber adds safety fee

SAN FRANCISCO

It was just last month, the company announced a new insurance policy after a driver hit and killed 6-year-old Sofia Liu on New Year's Eve.

At that time, Uber claimed the driver wasn't covered because he didn't have a passenger in his car. But the company changed its mind after a lawsuit was filed. It now covers drivers even when they aren't carrying a fare.
