So I have been looking into getting this Uber light for my windshield. It seems like a good to have thing especially during night shifts. I saw it on ebay but it was pretty expensive. I also fount this website: UberLight but I'm not sure how legit they are... Has anyone used the Uber glow light and if so what are yourfeedback? Thanks in advance.

I have both the glow Uber and glow Lyft light. My pax comment on them all the time and say it helps them to find me, especially in inclement weather. I only use them during the night shift and I have the dual remote control that plugs into the cigarette lighter (better than the batteries they came with). The Uber/Lyft lights cost me about $7 on ebay and $29 for the remote control set up on Amazon. I would recommend.

I have one also and only spent like 30 bucks on it, I also added blue led lights inside this also helps with dash cam. The passengers love it and I think it is nice. Working at night it is hard for you to stand out. This I felt helped.

You can't use those in California. Uber pulled them from drivers because it's illegal to have a blue or red light on your vehicle.

California resident also, so a white strobe light is ok? I read somewhere there should be no light visible near the front of the car

I have the blue and the pink light for lyft. I don't strobe it (it's an option) and I do live in CA. Cops have seen me and not pulled me over. In fact last weekend two cops nodded to me (our cops are very friendly to Uber/Lyft drivers in my area). So either my lights pass or they ignore it.

Under no circumstances should you display any trade dress on your car. I never have and I never will. I prefer not to make a target of myself. Furthermore, the paxs don't need to see that crap on your car because they already have a pic of your car.

In some places, like CA, you must show trade dress. It's a $1000 fine in CA. I'm not sure about other places, but I know CA is not the only place where it's legally required.

With your shiny Uber trade dress, you'll gain access to all those "Cab Stand Only" stands.

Every taxi driver for miles around will sing this song with you when they see your Uber logo sticker:

Keep a placard above the visor and flash it as necessary. That's all I do. Besides, if you end up with a ticket it's not a moving violation, so no need to pay it. It's like a parking ticket. In 40+ years of driving I have yet to pay a parking ticket or other non-moving violation.

Never had a problem with Taxis. We all wait in the same area for rides near our local suburb downtown hotspots. We have 3 streets that all converge in the center and we wait nearby together to get the rides from the bars. No conflicts. I only keep it on when I'm driving and take them down when I'm not driving. Pax like them as they can see me easily at night (I only use them for night driving--normal trade dress for daytime).
