70. When the fare for a trip is calculated by taximeter, the qualified driver must start the taximeter at the beginning of the trip and, unless the customer directs otherwise, stop it as soon as the taxi arrives at the destination.
For the purposes of this section, a trip begins when the customer gets into the automobile or when the customer explicitly asks the driver to wait for him or her.
If the taximeter becomes defective during a trip, the qualified driver must agree with the customer on the fare.
