It’s a traditional and essential part of the limo business that protects the client and ensures chauffeur longevity.
A chauffeur needs to control the vehicle. When things get too wild, he needs to step in and curb the client’s behavior. This is a basic safety issue. When a limo driver thinks he might lose the tip (which is the bulk of his pay), he’ll let the client do anything. This puts the client and the vehicle at risk.
The nice thing about the built-in gratuity is that clients usually tip a little extra at the end of a run. In this system, the chauffeurs simply make more money.
