New York, Sep 26 (ANI): Cab drivers in Chicago are not only making a demand for a rate hike, they are also asking that riders who throw up in their cabs get slapped with a 50-dollar fee.

The cabbies said on September 24 they want the city impose the penalty because of the work, and hours lost, which comes with cleaning a passenger's vomit, reports the New York Post.

Driver George Lutfallah said if someone throws up in the cab, it's no laughing matter to a driver.

He said cleaning a taxi after a mishap like that could result in the loss of nearly two hours of work because of the time involved in scrapping the vomit off the seats and floor.

Mayor Richard Daley said his administration will listen to the drivers' request and review their recommendations. (ANI)
