Chicago's Cabbies Want Hurling Fee

If you hurl, blow chunks, and/or spew in a Chicago taxi, the city's drivers union wants to you have to pay them $50.
“If somebody throws up in the back of a cab, it’s no laughing matter to that cabdriver, who now has to take a couple of hours to detail the cab. It’s hard to get that smell out if you’ve ever experienced anything like that,” cabdriver George Lutfallah, publisher of the “Chicago Dispatcher” told the City Council’s Transportation Committee.
$50 seems like a very reasonable fee, considering. The Chicago City Council is also considering a request to hike fares by 22%. According the union, drivers there make less than minimum wage after expenses.
