For years, the cab companies did this. "The drivers are not our employees, they are here by contract, we are not responsible for them. Around here, most cab companies are little more than glorified leasing companies. As the lawyers assumed that the companies were the "deep pockets", they "made arrangements" with the judges, politicians and regulators to hold the cab companies responsible for the drivers. Too bad for these lawyers that they learned very quickly that the balance sheet of a Colorado Short Line in the 1930s looked better than that of a D.C. cab company in the last quarter of the twentieth century.Uber, they just want to collect the money and shift all the responsibility to the driver
Yes, after you ask for their name with the doors locked and the window down. Do you have car seats or booster seats, what is their age and weight? Parents know their kids' age and weight, they might not know the law though. You're the one who will be screwed, you're not a taxi company.I'm not a very good judge of kids' ages. Not too long ago I picked up two women with a couple of young boys. They could have been young-looking 11-y/o's or old-looking 7-y/o's. Are we expected to ask ages and weights and pull out our chart?
Thanks for that link. I have to say I was shocked at how low the fines are. I got a ticket for "crossing a white line" a few months ago and the fine was $170.Here is the link for the state laws, found on the sidebar on the link above. Now you can type a chart for your market so you're covered and not screwed. Simple.
Actually, the source map shows the booster seat details. Go here (source) and hover over your state to get the details.I just went to my state's page on this and printed it to place in my car for future reference. The page did not address booster seats but it helps to have this much info
