Rider appears with a toddler and no car seat and I told him I wouldn't take them. Whats the proper way to cancel and still get a fee?
In some states, it's the driver's ticket if they get pulled over with a kid not in a car seat. In CA, the driver is OK as long as the parent/guardian is in the car (they will get the ticket, not the driver).
"...However, a driver can’t be cited for a child safety seat violation if a parent of the child is also a passenger in the vehicle...."
(Cal. Veh. Code §§ 27360, 27360.5, 27360.6, 12810(h) (2017).)
Will you perform a blood test to confirm that they are the parent?
Cancel, no show.
Nope. If I don't want to mess with it, I'll do the same thing as you - cancel.
If I want to make it work (for me), I will ask if they are the child's mom/dad. If they say yes, then I will use the dash cam footage if their story changes when we get pulled over.
Won't matter for you, even if they lie. The law is pretty unforgiving. They weren't the parent.
Cancel, no show. A driver will eventually take them, but the annoyance alone will hopefully encourage a change in their behavior.
Big surge, all laws are ignored of course.
This is a simple one. You decline the ride and ask them to cancel, and if they say "You cancel" you can either wait until the 3 minute mark, cancel and get a no show fee or wait them out which is what I've done. Eventually they get the message and cancel the ride.Rider appears with a toddler and no car seat and I told him I wouldn't take them. Whats the proper way to cancel and still get a fee?
While the ticket is of concern and in some states it will fall on you, done not BUT what happens if you are in an accident? I'll bet you James river will try not to pay claiming you violated the law, ... and the parents will sure you for letting them do it!
