Lawsuit protection on the part of Uber. Your average driver does not ask for an ID.

Under 18 can use Uber with someone 18+. The driver can reject the ride when S/He arrives and finds a underage rider. And will tag the account as a Under Age Rider so the rider can not just call another Uber. (Lyft I think has the same policy)
I'm glad that someone finally mentioned that it is against the rules to transport children under the age of 18.

True. Something I found interesting between Uber and Lyft, and this was a couple of years ago, I don't know if it's the case now. Lyft didn't allow "family" accounts while Uber did (does?). I had an 19 year old non-driver (legal age) at the time who could call Uber on my account. If she was using Lyft then I had to order the car and tell them they were picking up my kid, not me.
