Harry here. I get a lot of questions about driving minors on Uber and Lyft since, even though it’s against Uber and Lyft’s policies, we all know it still happens A LOT. Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince takes a look at how to deal with these situations.

Unfortunately, that won’t really help you because you’re still going to get requests, and you won’t know it’s a teen until you get there. Even then you may not know for sure how old they are. So here are ten tips for driving teens, drawn from my ample experience in Marin County, California.
