    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!

    What do YOU do when UNC students or others pile into your vehicle past the limits of seat belts?

    For 1 it's a safety issue and 2 it's illegal. If you were in an accident you would be liable.
