LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Las Vegas valley Uber driver says his ride-share vehicle is ready for those celebrating the holiday with cocktails this year.

“I’ve seen drunks, I’ve learned how to cope with them,” said Uber driver Frankie Guarino.

Inside his vehicle you’ll find water, hand sanitizer and blue bags.

“I have hospital grade vomit bags back there and I automatically give it to them and say, 'Hey, here’s your souvenir,'” said Guarino.

Guarino also keeps an emergency kit in the trunk.

“In case a real emergency were to happen, in other words an accident, I could go in and tend to my passengers,” said Guarino.

If someone gets sick, it can be taxing not only for Guarino but for the rider. Uber policy states a clean up could go anywhere from $20 to $150.

The driver then has to call it a night until it's safe for passengers again.

“I have to stop driving because I have to get actual cleaners to take care of it.”
