Throwing Up Or Getting Cosy In An Uber Cab Can Now Get You Blocked From The Apps Services

One of the leading online cab services, Uber, has released a set of guidelines for riders and drivers alike, and it looks like it might not go down too well with some people. These rules are applicable for all those cities where Uber is present. According to the new guidelines – vomiting inside the cab after drinking heavily or getting mushy and cosy with your partner – can get you blocked from availing Uber’s services in the future. While we can still control our carnal emotions, what are we supposed to do about the drinking part? Usually, one takes cabs after getting drunk and vomiting inside the cab, no matter how gross it sounds, is still a bodily function that is not in our control.

A strict warning was sent out by Uber which states that there will be, “no sexual conduct with drivers or fellow riders, no matter what,”. In fact, the list just doesn’t end there, as “unwanted contact with the driver or fellow passenger after the trip is over”, “touching or flirting with other people in the car” and asking “overly” personal questions are prohibited as well. However, it’s not like one drunk throwing up session will drive you away from the luxuries of this cab service. The company will take actions based on the nature of the “problematic behaviour”, although your account will be put on hold for the time being. The statement further added, “If the issues raised are serious or a repeat offence, or you refuse to cooperate with the driver, you may lose access to Uber.”

“When drivers use Uber, they do more than simply drive: they’re sharing their own car, their space, their time and a slice of who they are with passengers,” read the statement. It was further added, “But some don’t – whether it’s leaving trash in the car, throwing up in the back seat after too much alcohol or asking the driver to break the speed limit so they can get to their appointment on time. This kind of poor behaviour is not OK, which is why we will take action against passengers who are rude, abusive or violent.”

However, it’s not just cab users who are under the radar, drivers too can get blacklisted if the following instances happen – repeated refusals, cancellations and dip in star ratings, along with a few other actions. What’s more, the drivers can’t “discriminate” on the basis of where the rider is going or what’s the rider’s caste, religion or disability. These exhaustive guidelines have been translated into 10 Indian languages, and are aimed at instilling traits of good behaviour in both riders and drivers. 

So guys, next time you take a cab make sure that you are not too drunk that you end up puking on the car seat, and if you are then at least step outside to finish the business.
