We’ve heard some horror stories in the past about Uber drivers dealing with no good, very bad, and otherwise terrible riders, but now we know exactly what kinds of awful behavior will get riders banned from the platform forever.
Uber updated its community guidelines on Thursday to include a list of actions that will result in riders losing access to the service. The company says these are “some” of the reasons, as there are always folks out there who will come up with new ways to make life difficult for others.
“Courtesy matters,” Uber says. “That’s why you are expected to exercise good judgment and behave decently towards other people in the car when riding with Uber — just as you would in any public place.”
Here are the actions that will get you the boot:
• Damaging drivers’ or other passengers’ property: Damaging the car, breaking or vandalizing a driver’s phone, intentionally spilling food or drink, smoking, or vomiting due to excessive alcohol consumption.
