Picking up minors with Uber

So, I know Uber has rules against giving rides to minors but I am just curious how this is really enforced? I mean, are you supposed to ask every youngish looking person who enters your car their age?

Has anyone ever actually kicked someone out of there car becuase they thought they were underage?

    I have never paid attention. I am an old hag and I cannot tell how old people are... I mean...I thought the idea is that all Uber users are at least 18 and hence legal to be taking rides.  I figured Uber is doing that vetting for me, so I don't have to worry.  Right?

    ...and I assume at least there's one 18+ in the car, all is good, right?

      Agreed - Uber should be held reliable!

    I have never kicked anyone out, I mean I don't think I have ever had someone who is underage in my car even.

    I feel like as long as the person looks like a teenager I wouldn't question it, now if a little kid got in my car I might call the police or something as I would fear the kid was lost.

    I am a taxi driver.  I have transported in multiple instances underage kids. They hail me, the parents would put them on, etc etc.  When I used to drive in NYC, I was told the kids' laws like seatbelts, carseats, and underage thing are exempt in a taxi.

    not sure about uber.

    I feel as if the teenager is at least 14 or older then they should be able to handle the responsibility to get from point A to point B without any problems.
