Kevin Rodriguez from the YouTube channel The Apptrepreneur posted a video about an Uber driver supposedly getting suspended from Uber because he spoke to his passenger and his “car was a bit too cold.”
I’ve been having intermittent problems with AT&T Wireless. I’m having difficulties using their “Fastest in Hagerstown wireless network.”
Uber sent me a ride request yesterday afternoon. When I arrived at the passenger’s location, a woman walked out of the house carrying a baby in a basket-style baby carrier. It did not look like an approved child safety seat. I didn’t see how it could be strapped into with a seatbelt. I didn’t see her child strapped into the carrier.
I had an unpleasant experience Monday while driving for Uber. It involved Maryland’s child safety seat law and Uber’s refusal to support it.
I thought that when you drove for Uber or Lyft, you were exempt from the law requiring young children to be in a child safety seat. Taxis are exempt from the Maryland child safety seat law. I was under the assumption that Maryland considered rideshare drivers to be like taxi drivers.
Once a week Lyft emails its drivers a feedback summary. It supposedly shows how we did for the week and if there are any areas we can improve. It includes our up-to-date Lyft driver feedback score. That is, it’s up-to-date at the time the email was sent.
