I have addressed this in multiple forums, You Tube, with Uber & Lyft etc...  I dont care who is offended. How dare you endanger a child (Your own flesh and blood)? You want to be reckless and negligent do it with your own life.

  DRIVERS and RIDERS GET your HEAD  OUT of your ASS. 

RIDERS,  STOP being SELFISH and MINDLESS. ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT YOUR CHILD.  YOUR JOB AS A PARENT IS TO KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE. PROTECT THEM AT ALL COST.  DONT REQUEST A LYFT OR UBER WITHOUT A DAMN CHILD SAFETY SEAT OR BOOSTER.  Do you realize that you are getting into a car with a stranger? Do you realize the driver could be drunk, high, impaired in some way? Do you realize that you may have the greatest driver that ever lived (very doubtful) but the drivers around the car you are in could be high, drunk, tired, or driving with distractions? Do I really need to go on? STOP AND THINK BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR CHILD IN DANGER. As a parent I just cant fathom how a parent can be so negligent, reckless, and irresponsible with their childs life. WTF?  put your child's safety first. If you cant do that you are not a mom or dad you dont deserve your child & your child sure as hell dont deserve you.

DRIVERS, STOP DRIVING THESE BABIES, TODDLERS, & YOUNG CHILDREN IN YOUR CAR.  If you get in an accident and that child gets hurt or dies you will loose everything. Is living with the memory of a  child flying threw your windshield really worth $5, $10, $20? Going to jail? Lawyer fees? Your name and your family dragged through the press, social media, the internet?  As a driver do you drive your own kids without a seat? It's bad enough peopl...

It's bad enough people dont care about other people most of the time.  When adults dont care what happens to their child or someone elses thats just absolutely disgusting. So Sad! 

I dont know the laws in every state but I do know there are laws in every state that CHILDREN NEED TO BE IN CHILD SAFETY SEATS OR BOOSTERS. If you are not sure of the laws in your state click on any link below.

    How often does this happen to you? Do you find that people give you a really hard time if you refuse to take them?

      I started driving in a different area & time. Dont usually have the issue much anymore.  I did a few weeks back but kid was old enough for booster. I do carry one of them. Its light weight, I have room to store it, and it only cost me 14.79. I have heard if you supply a car safety seat & child gets hurt you are still liable. Booster seat isnt a safety seat, it just raises child up so seatbelt lays properly.  Most people flipped put on me when I told them I wasnt going to drive them. I had one lady with 4 kids under 4 yrs old. "It wasnt her fault because no one told her kids need to be in car seats". I had to pull away. The utter stupidity amazes me at times. Although I am sure she was lying. How could you not know. The other thing that pisses me off is when I hear "the last driver did it". SMH, is it really worth a few bucks? Not to me. Look I hate declining rides to some of the people out there but if I get in accident I ruin my life, my famili...

I am not living with the memory of someones child flying threw my windshield bouncing off another moving car. Then there is lawyer fees, fines, loss of job, possible jail time, etc... You know damn right well the mom who complained I wouldnt drive them would sue my ass. No thanks.

      I have a feeling the parents who NEED to see this are the ones who will completely turn a blind eye to this type of post. I am sure they are think they are good parents and are justified in their reasons for not putting their child in a car seat in that one situation. So infuriating, it only takes one situation for a life to change forever.

    The lack of judgement some parents show will never cease to amaze me.

    I am with you on this one, this irritates me to no end!! Those poor children who are in these situations completely unaware that they are even in danger. We have gone from "do not get in cars with strangers" to "get in cars with strangers and don't wear seatbelts" GRRR

      I have posted here on the forum a few mths back,  FB, and many other places. I have sent countless messages to Uber & Lyft. I've seen You Tubers address it and its still happening. It blows my mind that parents will get into a strangers car not knowing anything about the driver other than a rating. Even if driver is perfect there are other idiots on the road. I drive all different times day and night. Its absolutely horrible out hete on the roads. Wednesday morning I stopped driving. I had 5 near misses of other drivers coming within an inch or 2 of hitting my car. I've seen accidents where person was decapitated by tractor trailer, cars flipped, the list goes on. The amount of distracted drivers out here is insane. Uber & Lyft may have taken drunks off the road but there are other idiots with the cell phone leaning on steering wheel texting paragraphs or talking with phone in hand.  They are doing 35mph in a 55 which mean other drivers  are doing 70/8...

You want to kill yourself or damage your car go for it but dont put others at risk. If Uber and Lyft drivers could give tickets the cities would be rolling in the money:) Thank you for commenting
