It s winter. Viruses, flu, and now the coronavirus, are constantly making people sick. Making sure you stay healthy means that, as a driver, you have to sanitize your car regularly. If you have a passenger that is sick or complaining of any symptoms, it s time to pull over after they leave and make your car germ-free. Learning how to do this properly takes a bit of research and some good common-sense.
First, it s always a great idea to keep Purell or another hand sanitizer in your cab. Whether you are using it, or your passengers are or preferably both, it can protect you against illness, which means you have as many sick days off of work. Not to mention the fact that, sometimes you re in your cab and you smell an unpleasant odor one that becomes more pervasive the more you drive. That odor can be from food or other items, but it likely carries germ-filled bacteria as well. Because cars can regularly become germ-infested with bacteria, bacteria which lives on steering wheels, interior handles, car chargers and mobile devices, and seats, it s important to disinfect consistently.Read More
George Bernard Shaw once suggested that, the single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” What does this mean? To the everyday person, it means that just because we think we have communicated effectively doesn t mean that, in reality, we have. When it comes to passengers, giving an address requires a simple communication between the driver and the passenger. When it comes to communication amongst drivers themselves, there is a whole world of communication passengers aren t privy to.
Whether by hand signal or discourse, it s a known fact that taxi drivers have a code of their own. When a passenger forgets his/her cellphone, for example, in the back of a cab, drivers will often go far out of their way to return it. Feel free to call your phone if you ve lost it. And in many cases drivers will even deliver it to you where you are. If that s the case, please don t forget to tip the driver as he/she likely gave up a fare to return your precious smartphone.Read More
