Dangerous accidents are shown in photos uploaded under the hashtag, which users claim involve Uber drivers
Uber denied all of the incidents uploaded under the hashtag involved their drivers and claimed it is used by detractors to make false claims.
They confirmed a number of the photos showed Uber cars, but claimed they were involved two-car collisions where the Uber driver was not at fault.
An Uber spokesman added: “Sadly Twitter is full of totally false claims made by black cab drivers and others against Uber. A large number of claims which are made on Twitter have been investigated and found to have nothing to do with Uber at all. There are more than one million Uber trips a week in London alone and thankfully accidents are incredibly rare.”
