As Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) like Uber and Lyft are expanding day by day, it is essential to assess safety standards for children traveling in these vehicles. Hence, we developed a scoring system to assess each state’s safety standards for children traveling in TNC vehicles. State statutes were reviewed using Nexus Uni, a legal research database. The scoring was based on two subjects pertaining to the child car seat laws for TNCs: clarity and stringency. For each parameter, three criteria that could impact child safety in TNC vehicles were formulated. This data has questions along with the answers.
