"I don't think it's safe," she said. "I'm just not comfortable putting my child in a car with someone I don't know."
Boca Raton dad Bruce Gipson says his 17-year-old daughter has taken Uber a few times to get to and from work -- without his knowledge.
"I didn't know she'd used it until I asked her how she got home," he said. "I'm not real thrilled about it because you don't know who's picking you up."
Gipson, a retired Miami Beach firefighter, says he had no idea about Uber's ban on transporting minors.
Now, he said, he longer has to worry about it.
"I bought her a car in December," he said.
