Dear Chicago, barf in your cab before July 1st.
We already have the fees in Austin, but I don't think it's $50. Cabs should have vomit bags like planes do.
The good thing is that the inebriated are taking cabs!
"After years of fighting, Chicago cab drivers will finally get their vomit tax starting July 1.
In January, the City Council signed off on updated regulations, including a $50 "cleanup fee" cab drivers have been lobbying for since 2009 (though they shaved $25 off the requested price).
Previously, cab drivers in Chicago and elsewhere were at the mercy of their often-incoherent passengers, some of whom would compensate them for the trouble, although drivers were forbidden to charge extra for the inconvenience, Dena Reed, general counsel for the District of Columbia Taxicab Commission told the Huffington Post in 2009."
