KEY WEST, Fla. - Key West might be one of Florida's party capitals but don't get too drunk.
The Miami Herald is reporting that Key West cabbies might soon start charging passengers who vomit in their cars a $50 cleanup fee.
According to the city's largest cab company, about five passengers vomit in its cars each year. Officials at Five 6's cab company say most of those happen on New Year's Eve and during Fantasy Fest, the city's 10-day party that culminates on Halloween.
Five 6's says that it would probably waive the fee for sober adults and children who get sick. The fee is aimed at drunks who vomit in a cab. That takes the car off the road for several hours to be cleaned, costing the company money.
