You just tell them. I was a taxi driver and taxi is offically public transport, our law forbids eating, drinking, smoking, stinking etc in public transport, so it wasn´t hard to ask them to obey.

I also had sticekrs not to smoke, not to eat on passenger side window. Same signs you can see on a city bus here.
It helped, less people were eating in my car and they asked if it was OK. Sometimes it was, when they explained that they were very busy, no time to eat their lunch, I didn´t kick them out for bolting down a banana.

People can control themselves if they respect you.

When I was driving yellow cab, we had a steady rider who was a doorman at a dive bar. After work, he always called from an adjacent all-night sandwich shop, but always kept it in the bag for the ride to his apartment.

i used to get my first ping from the same mother n primary ger ger nearby. i guess, ger dun wanna wake up, etc, mum has no time to feed the ger at home n rushing to send her to school on time. thus, she ALWAYS brought food along n ate inside the car.. at once, mum was trying to feed her soup too :rolleyes:... i hv NO Food/drink/smoke stickers too... guess mum wont care.
any way, if she fed her girl well enuf n keep the car clean then im ok. everytime after dropping them off, i hv to pull ovet to clean up the droppings..at once, found the tissue paper too :mad:
i pityy the mum n its a pitty she doesnt know how to educate her gerger manners in this regards... anyway.. i blacklisted them aftetr a few trips with me n i no longer hv the first troubling issue first rider of the day...
:D

Hi all,

As per subject "How to tactically tell riders not to eat or drink in my car?"

Just hate it when my car have people eating & drinking...

Regards,
Teck
I like how the American drivers deal with this issue. They would tell their riders that they are sharing a ride with the driver as uber is a ride share initiative and that the rider is sharing a ride in the driver's car. As a result, the driver does not allow eating / drinking / smoking in his car. Moreover, simply put forward to them that they would not like to get into a car that is smelly or with crumbs or with cockroaches, so likewise, they too should leave the car clean for others.

If they still refuse, stop the car, cancel the ride, throw them out. If they refuse, call the police. Remember it's your car whether it's a rental or not. And if you don't complete the trip, they can't rate you. You can always ask uber for a portion of the ride later and explain that the rider was eating in your car despite being told not to do so.
