    When will Uber do ANYTHING about minors?

    It's against the Uber rules/policy for anyone under 18 to use Uber (unaccompanied by an adult). In California, it's also against the law. And yet EVERY day I get ride requests for unaccompanied minors. Uber pretends to care and enforce their rules and yet they don't even have an option when...

    Ct UBER Drivers - do you enforce the Child Car Seat Laws?

    My rating took a hit 2 weeks ago when I told a woman that I did not have a child safety seat in my car and that by law I could not transport her child.

    Unexpected Riders.

    Hi. I'm a new UBER driver and in my very first day, I had a request to pick up one rider (duh...). So far everything was normal, till he told me to do a shortcut to pick up two more riders.
