    Take photos and make it look as bad as possible. Write that it is down in the door mechanism even if it isn't. Then clean it as best you can asap after photos. There are other posts here on the best way to do that. I'm not an expert.

    Also carry puke bags and let all late night pax know where they are from now on. I drive almost all drunk hours and I've had some close calls but having good bags (not grocery bags) helps as they are easier to use. There's a link to what I have in the driver info section here.

    Got it.
    I took some photos... How long do i need to wait before driving again so uber wont say " nothning happened "
    anyways i just ended the ride and he apolpgised . His other friend took care of him. And i pulled into a gas station to clean the car. It smells like a hot dog...

    Sorry to hear it was a bad Friday for most, but I had a decent Friday.
    DTLB to north LBC ($15).
    LBC to Santa Monica ($55).
    Santa Monica to RPV @ 1.9x ($70).
    DTLB to Pico Rivera ($30).
    DTLB to north LBC ($15 and In-N-Out meal)
    3.1x from 1 min away, arrived, pax cancelled. Kindly asked pax to go eat a dick (probably did, since it was a gay bar) and called it a night. For any PC nazis, I didn't actually tell the pax to eat a dick. Just advised him to go **** himself.
    Mixed with a bunch of min fare rides in DTLB, but Lyft tips usually add at least $20. **** ton of miles... but minimal dead miles.

    i
    i tell every pax that has been drinking, no matter how much or little, if they puke in my car im charging $200 that night for cleaning fee (cuz we literally can), and that motivates them to tell me to pull over. always always always carry puke bags. make sure u or pax has very essy access to.them.

    I always tell them.. Uber will charge them minimum $250-400. We need to exaggerate a little to scare them off. Lol

    so far its worked every time. i also try to bring it up with all pax that we can charge cleaning fees. most pax dont know this and im hopen it keeps them motivated to stay clean in all uber cars they take

    Had a pretty good afternoon. Rides from Los Feliz to Long Beach and then back to west LA made the day for me. Then I witnessed a cyclist get hit by a car and sent to the hospital and was nearly involved in my own head-on collision. I'm taking today off and brewing some beer. Too many crazy drivers out there this weekend.
