Cabbies Allowed To Charge Drunken Passengers For Cleanup

Feb 4, 2014

Taxi drivers in Columbus want intoxicated riders to pay for cleaning up the vehicles.

The city's Vehicle For Hire Board has approved allowing cabbies to charge 50-dollars to drunken passengers who vomit or relieve themselves in the backseat. If a passenger refuses to pay, the driver can call police. Cab company owners say drivers lose time and money cleaning up their vehicles, and they deserve to be compensated.
