TORONTO - Toronto council gave the thumbs up to a $25 vomit charge for passengers who throw up in the back of a cab.

While councillors okayed the fee Wednesday, it’s unclear when taxi drivers can start imposing the charge.

“A driver’s going to have to pull over and clean up the cab and spend some time and money,” said Councillor Gord Perks, who added the fee is “reasonable.”

The fee was part of a Taxi Industry Review, which also contained recommendations for creating a new type of licence.
