Is it a bad idea to tell my Uber driver I'm a minor beforehand?

Sometimes I get denied a ride when the driver arrives since I'm a minor, but telling the driver while he's on his way to pick me up kind of feels like I'm asking to be kidnapped or something. Is texting him/her that I'm a minor beforehand a bad idea?
I must've worded the question poorly. The question isn't whether minors can use Uber. I know the answer is no.

The question is, is asking the driver if they will drive minors by phone before they get to my house a bad idea. Due to the possibility of kidnapping and etc

Other answer:

Percyqted:
If Uber 's terms and conditions prevent people under a certain age using them and you are under that certain age their driver's have the right to refuse to pick you up. I hope they still charge you for the wasted trip. If you are a minor ansd worried about your security what are you doing out on your own?
Pat F85:
Uber – Account holders must be 18 or over and CANNOT request a ride for riders under 18 unless accompanied by the account holder making the request.
So in other words, if you're under 18, you are not even suppose to request a ride from Uber.
