API to accept surge for user?

Is there an API to accept (or reject) surge confirmation on behalf of the user? (I understand the surge confirmation URL is provided; is there a way to programmatically accept automatically for user?)

    Its not straightforward to do that programatically. When the user Accepts the higher fare in the webpage, they submit and get a surge token via javascript's ajax request.

    Even if we could achieve it programmatically somehow, we shouldn't do it I think.
    They do this confirmation to make sure they don't get into legal troubles.

    Lets wait to hear from the moderator as well.

    I understand the legal and UX reasoning behind allowing user to accept/reject surge.

    My question is within the context of user-dictated settings. e.g. I'd like to provide a way in my app for users to accept/reject surge by default.
