    No more Zoo pickups for me . . . Once again, I get called out to the Zoo from Downtown (Hyatt). Saturday afternoon, I should have known better. I show up, PAX is a very attractive Hispanic Woman with two kids. I roll down the window and ask her "how old are your kids"? She gives me a bewildered...

    https://www.abc15.com/longform/lyft-uber-car-seat-law This is a problem where both drivers and their parent passengers are to blame. In Arizona, state law requireschildren younger than 8 years old or less than 4 feet 9 inches tall to sit in a proper child safety seat. The purpose of this...

    https://www.uber.com/info/nyc-car-seat/ Was wondering if y'all got anything from the extra $10 Uber's charging and how this is working out for y'all in general.

    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. Today I picked up a family that was staying in the downtown Bpt Holiday Inn and they had a toddler. I'm not really happy admitting this but they...

    How do you handle requests when you get there and it is someone with Littles who should be in a car seat?? For liability reasons, I'm declining rides. I'm surprised Uber seems to allow it because the response i received was that i could politely decline, not that it was against policy, though...

    You can imagine that driving 6-8 hours a week on weekends in Hoboken doesn't really cause me too many run ins with babies and small children, however I somehow got two back to back parents/kiddies last night at midnight. You can already imagine the responsibility levels here... First, was a...

    I'm sick and tired of getting stuck in situations where a pax puts up a fight because I won't take a kid without a car seat. I'm also tired of hearing other drivers get in the same situation. If I catch you doing it, I'll report you to Uber and call the cops! It's illegal and morally...

    Are you guys picking up children especially those that need car seats, infant seats or booster seats. I decline all of them. I'm looking out for myself. Read: Any child under the age of 8 years old and a height of 57 inches shall be secured as follows in the rear seat of a motor vehicle...

    Good evening, I'm finding that there are parents who use uber that don't have car seats. I was floored today by one parent who said shopping was more important then carring around a car seat. I stopped at target and bought the mother one and told her she needed to have a car seat for her child...

    So I go to pick up a PAX out walks 2 gals and a 1-2 yr old baby. Of course no car seat. I ask if they have one and they don't so I say I can't take you with out one against the law and my liability. Guess what they say? Yep, other Uber drivers don't care. So I politely say well try another one...

    Hello All, So I'm a new driver for Uber, still going through the verification rigmarole or whatever, but looking forward to doing some Ubering! What I am wondering about is whether any of you guys are keeping car seats in your trunks while Ubering. I have 2 car seats and I'm thinking of...
