If i was the driver, and i was deactivated for taking minors, i would sue uber.I understand the rules regarding minors, but it should be up to uber to enforce the rule, and not the driver.The 2 under age Kids are banned from using Uber and driver will be deactivated for taking minors
I believe the girl used her dad credit account but she signed as a rider under her name.The 2 under age Kids are banned from using Uber and driver will be deactivated for taking minors
Only when it's becomes public.They blame everyone except themselves, when something bad occurs.
Most of U18 pax are wearing their prestigious school uniforms. You don't need to bother to ask them nor encourage them to tell a lie.Bit harsh JG to proceed down that path. My modus operandi when picking up what "apparently" is a minor is to:
1) remind them that the uber T&C's dont allow unaccompanied minors under 18 in an uber
2) reinforce the point that its ok to ride in an uber if 18 or over
3) now ask them to think carefully before answering next question
4) ask how old they are
And they always answer 18! So I am "off the hook" (if they were under 18), they get a ride and are educated for future rides/Uber gets its cut and all is well in the world.
It is not unlawful for Uber drivers to take U18 pax. Nothing between driver & Uber to stop it. In fact official message back to me from Uber muppet, was that it was up to me to decide.It is our discretion to decide whether the trip would be safe for both of us and the pax and carry it out, and we don't breach any T&C or agreements.

Nothing in VicRoads laws to stop us either. So, as long as they're not too young, I'm happy to safely transport the older U18s to their destinations. I am WWC accredited if it helps.
Well, not really. I've enjoyed safely transporting 16 & 17 yo kids to their destinations without issue. Very, very polite pax and no complaints. Probably because they know full well they are breaking the pax/Uber rules, so they're on their best behaviour.Fail
This is a great idea. My friend who lives in Rosebud does this in the summer holidays at the Safeway down there. Makes about $800 per day from desperate kids buying them grog and ciggies.Taxi takes kids why not uber just leaving that market for taxi to scoop up all themselves
Back in old days 2015 driving dandenong taxi used to get offered tip from kids to buy alcohol or cigarette all the time most drivers do it for $20 its not harming anyone 14 year old kid if want smokes will get smokes somehow any way!!
