Had to do it again yesterday! Young guys with drinks!

Yesterday (Saturday) I get an XL ping on St. Charles Ave. 6 young guys walking toward the vehicle and every one of them has either a red Solo cup or a can of beer in his hand. I make sure the doors are locked and drive away. I see one of them run into the street with his hands help up in the air like the "Touchdown Jesus" acting all surprised that I'm driving off and canceling the trip. I wonder if the next Uber they ordered actually took them in. Hope not. I saw in my trip list from yesterday that they were going to 634 Louisa St. (The Country Club). Seems like I have an issue with every one of my trips to or from that place, always involving young over-privileged punks!

I had a young couple last night approach my car with beer in plastic cups. When they opened the back door, I told them they couldn't r ide with the open containers. I could see the liquid level in the cup was about 1/3 full. I told them if they wanted to finish the drinjs, I would wait a minute or two. They finished in a few minutes. They got in the car,they were from California, real nice people, and had a real nice conversation with them on the ride. Glad I didn't just keep going because they had drink cups.

Gotta love you newbies! When a cop finally gets a look at one of your rider taking a sip from a plastic cup, he's gonna pull you over and cite you for an open container violation for each person with a cup or beer can. Minimum fine is $227 per violation.
The police can cite me for two people standing on the sidewalk sipping their drinks? Two people who never entered my car?

Don't think so.
Sorry, meant to reply to Krazy9000.
But, as I said before, your case was the exception, you were lucky to get riders who understood, and you still can't be sure they didn't give you less than 5 stars. If you continue to tell riders to drink it or dump it, your ratings will drop.
I agree, a young, well dressed couple is different than 5 or 6 dudes.
