If you're out binge drinking in Chicago, you might want to carry a little extra money around with you before attempting to make your way home in a taxi...
The drivers want to charge a $50 “clean-up fee” for inebriated passengers who lose their lunch in the back of the cab.
“If somebody throws up in the back of a cab, it’s no laughing matter to that cabdriver, who now has to take a couple of hours to detail the cab. It’s hard to get that smell out if you’ve ever experienced anything like that.”
I don't think that's unreasonable.
However, I also think they should offer passengers a 50% discount if the overwhelming smell of Drakkar Noir or B.O. inside the cab is determined to be the sole reason for the intestinal outburst.
