    City says 10 or newer Uber says 15 or newer.

    When city laws say you can't and Uber allows you to drive. Has anyone gotten in trouble because of this? I doubt it but I'm sure someone has come across this? Uber would allow me to drive my Nissan Altima 2003 but my city laws says rideshare cars have to be 10 years or newer. Anyone got...
