(1) Chauffeurs must have a passenger manifest in their possession to operate a limousine:
(a) The passenger manifest must be available for immediate examination upon request from an enforcement officer. If the chauffeur is inside the limousine, the manifest must be inside the limousine. If the chauffeur is outside the limousine, the manifest must be carried by the chauffeur;
(b) The chauffeur must document with the limousine carrier business office, and note on the passenger manifest the times, to the hour and minute, when the chauffeur is on duty;
(c) Trips must be prearranged at least fifteen minutes before the passenger is scheduled to be picked up unless dispatched from a limousine carrier's business office.
(2) The passenger manifest may be a paper or electronic record and must contain information to verify prearrangement of limousine services. The records must be in English. The manifest must contain:
(a) The full name and daytime telephone number for the person who prearranged the limousine service;
(b) The time, date, and location where the passenger requested to be picked up;
(c) The destination point; and
(d) If payment was due or was prepaid.
(3) The manifest is to cover all rides that have been scheduled up to that point for that day.
(4) A limousine carrier must ensure that chauffeurs operating limousines do not:
(a) Pick up persons who have not prearranged services;
(b) Load passengers or their luggage into their vehicle without having a passenger manifest that includes the customer information for that passenger;
(c) Ask persons on the street if they want to hire the limousine or try to attract customers for immediate services;
(d) Use a third-party to provide passengers for them as a substitute for prearranging the service. This section does not preclude hotels from contracting with limousine carriers to prearrange rides for guests;
(e) Stand near doors or walkways to businesses or transportation centers in a manner so that persons must walk around them to enter or exit;
(f) Touch members of the public or touch their luggage or packages without consent; or
