Americans With Disabilities Act is a Federal law. Feel free to violate it & not accommodate service dogs, but don't expect to keep driving for a major transportation company if you do. You can also be fined the Federal government & could easily have a civil lawsuit filed against you.

So I should suffer and put my life in harm or PUt my My next passanger in danger? (if I was talking about me.) I am stating if allergies keep u from doing your job that is a disability. It's a Hypocrite Stands. Instead of always defending Uber try using your critical thinking skills. People use this forum to talk and complain about things. I use it as distresser.

Your poor command of the english language is causing me distress.

In your defense though, the ADA covers both the person with the service animal and you, the allergy sufferer. It is the company who employs you (yourself) who needs to comply with the ADA and make accomodations for the allergy sufferer (you) and prevent them from occupying the same space as the service animal.

If you have legitimate allergies to dogs then the person with the service animal is forcing you to violate ADA regulations by putting you in the situation.

There is a good post on another forum that covers this pretty well...

Sorry to jump in but it's fun. :biggrin: Not only will you be tossed and possibly sued personally and fined, a driver was just arrested. You can pop a couple of pills for allergies, blind pax with ADA dogs wish they could pop a couple eyeballs in. :rolleyes: ADA is nationwide so I took the bait here. Keep a sheet in the trunk for an ADA Dog, you are allergic to dander, not the dog or the fur. There are several threads on this. The only way around this is to stay with the pax and wait for another driver, who does take the pax, not just drives off. If you think it's worth waiting then wait, or wait to get tossed. :biggrin:

It was NEVER decided in a Court of Law, the only thing that happened was an OUT OF COURT SETTLEMENT was reached between Uber and the National Federation for the Blind. There is no case law on the books that says Uber or its Independent Contractors are required to comply with the ADA. All this settlement means is Uber created policies to accomodate people with service animals, that is it.

There is a guy on here, goes by afrojoe824 who works for a bank and knows all about how the ADA applies to people in the transportation business, look him up, appears to be the resident expert.

By the way, there are two cases in the SC and they run the ADA. :cool: Travass decided it's easier to toss drivers since there are always three lined up behind them. :rolleyes: Anyone with a credit card over 18 can get an account, I think that's the public. :cool:

Show me where someone was arrested for just denying a ride, I know the one case where the guy drove off and injured a blind pax, but he was arrested for that. Where is denying someone a ride a capitol offense? Local cops don't enforce Federal Regulations.

lol you still won't give it up. Notice how no one likes your comments? Because they see you're clueless..


Plenty of people on other threads including this is already saying its a federal law. Feel free to decline service dogs and see the lawsuits and fines pile up.

Even MasterKNinja said the same thing.


Gosh these new people really are stubborn.

I think you're right, imagine the judge giving a harsher sentence though. You realize your pax literally didn't see you about to hit him right? :cool: There is a very good thread on this, I imagine you can Google the two pending SC cases. It is likely to pass when Travass is enforcing it and this is not a small, local, private car service with a few vehicles in their fleet. Bottom line doesn't change, you will be tossed if you don't wait for another driver.

Lol... putting your life in danger of a dog allergy?

If your allergies are that severe maybe driving people around is not the job for you.

Careful, denying him a job he wants to do because of his disability may just get you in trouble with the HandiCops

There are drivers with allergies who are concerned, they're not all healthy drivers who just don't want a dog in their car. :rolleyes: The issue is there is treatment and cures for the allergies, not for blind people.
