    I think you just created a new business. Uber for Car Repairs. Genius!!

    I'm sure if the driver is okay with it and you pay the driver for his or her trouble, it's totally ok.

      On-demand car jumps?  Isn't that what AAA is all about?

    Who is responsible if cables are hooked up incorrectly and damage is done to a vehicle?  If something happens during the jump, Uber and Lyft insurance WILL NOT cover anything.  If you need a jump, call AAA or your roadside assistance and get help from someone licensed and insured to provide that service.

    This seems like an excellent idea. UberJumpStart.  It should be a service they offer.

    Many Uber drivers do carry jumper cables, at least those experienced ones who may have been in the taxi business.  Driving is our job and we spend a lot of time in cars.  It makes sense to have a few items in the car, you know? I also carry a blanket, cat litter, emergency bag of food and water.
