    Pax open container and police

    Last week I caught someone, again, exiting my car while carrying an open container (beer can) that was snuck in. This got me wondering what to do if I'm pulled over and the cop sees a pax with an open container. Has anyone had to deal with this?

    Uptick in pax trying to bring alcohol

    I have had a rash of pax trying to hop onboard with cups of alcohol. I am amazed that they would think this is acceptable or even legal. Are these people this stupid or is there other drivers allowing this? I make them dump them or threaten to cancel the ride. Just boggles my mind!

    Tne ACT rideshare legislation does not ban passengers in a rideshare vehicle from drinking alcohol or from possessing an open container of alcohol. (Of course, the driver would be entitled to deny his or her permission for this to happen.) Interestingly, the same legislation in section 147 does...

    Open container (alcohol) policy in South Florida.

    Can someone enlighten me on Uber's policy for having open alcohol containers in the vehicle?

I googled...

    Legal Action Against Lyft

    I'm looking for help or some advice. I had a disagreement about politics with a rider and he decided to report to Lyft that "I seemed like I might be under the influence".

    Open Container

    So last night I transported some college kids and when we almost got to the destination I noticed that one of them had a alcohol in a soft drink bottle. What do you guys do in this type of situation. End the ride right there, stop and ask them to toss it, create a report with Uber?
