His daughter is allergic to dogs, so he didn't want to allow a service dog in his vehicle.



We have all heard stories of drivers refusing service to dog handling teams on the grounds they are allergic or fear dogs. But Uber introduces a new wrinkle into this battle. Since they use their own private cars, they can claim that relatives are allergic to dogs to refuse service.

This is not something to be overlooked in light of the proposed settlement with Uber now pending in the court.
