    Is it a requirement to be a cigarette smoker at the LAX holding area

    Wow, I didn't know so many people still smoked until I was at the LAX holding area... I figure in 2018 you should be vaping, as it's healthier. At one point, this Filipino dude comes up to me with his cigarette in hand to talk to me while blowing smoke in my face (I don't smoke). The thing is...

    What do you do if a passenger wants you to break the rules?

    What do you do if a passenger wants to break Uber policy or the law. For example, bring open alcoholic beverages or fit more people in the car than you have seatbelts or smoke cigarettes on the way?

    Smoking vs Non-Smoking: Do Riders/Drivers get to choose?

    Will Uber ever update their rider app so riders can request a non-smoking car (and vice-versa)? I was shocked to see other Uber drivers sitting and smoking in their cars while waiting at the airport! As a non-smoker, I would NOT want to have to pay good money to have to ride in a smoker's...

    I had a rider today who threw his cigarette on the ground before getting into my car. Honestly, I witness this behaviour by riders at least once a week and it's starting to bother me. How hard is it to wait until you find a bin? Are these people ignorant and uneducated or just selfish human...

    Do you smoke or allow smoking in your car?

    I had a rider that told me that they dismissed the driver previous to me because his car smelled like an ashtray! How stupid can you be? Just because you have that nasty little habit doesn't mean that others wanna smell that crap!

    Anyone Else Cancel When Someone is Smoking As You Pull Up?

    I had a serious stink problem in my car for weeks after picking up a passenger who was smoking as I pulled up. So, I have started just either driving off, canceling or sometimes informing them why I am refusing their ride. Has anyone else adopted this policy?
