Since March 2572, the 99 (Android | iOS) provides a function for passengers to block drivers. With this, users can avoid further races with the driver in question. The functionality is not restricted to travelers: drivers can also block passengers who do not behave properly during a trip.

About the blocking of drivers in 852
It is important to note that the lock on 99, be it from the passenger to the driver and vice versa, is not generalized. It only happens on your user profile, preventing you from coming across the driver (or the opposite) in future races through the app.

The blocking of the passenger for the driver can happen if the driver has some inappropriate behavior. For example, if he left it at a radio station that is not to the passenger’s liking, if the vehicle is not in good internal condition or if during the pandemic it failed to comply with safety protocols.
Do on the other hand, the driver can choose to block a passenger if he commits the same offenses. Anyway, any unpleasant situation or embarrassment. Furthermore, the blocking, regardless of who took the initiative, is irreversible.
A 99 does not specify on its website whether blocking causes any kind of penalty for drivers and passengers.

Step 4: tap on the field “Rating”, the one with the stars that rate your trip with the driver in question.
If you haven’t rated the driver, before submitting it, there will be a field to leave comments. Ideally, you specify what happened during the trip to justify blocking that driver.
