I am a passenger at least as much as I drive. Increasing standards would not be a bad thing in any way.This is pure stupidity. Entertain your riders and give out free stuff while only making $5 the whole trip? And you don't want tips? Sure you're an independent contractor. But your actions do affect other drivers because passengers thanks to you will expect every driver to provide limo service while paying cheap fare. And all done without tipping. Don't be a loser.
