Comon city easy money!

For crying out loud, uber and lyft both warn drivers that if you are caught without it, then you risk a $1000 fine.

It is a cut and dry case.

Cop : Driver

Do you have your trade dress?: No
And you are?: Waiting for a pickup at (LAX or ONT)...
You came in here knowing you did not have one?: Yes...

You work for?: (Uber or Lyft)

Automatic Citation and discourage the dum drivers at these airports. We all read the guides (I hope).

Oh but:
Rebuttle: But we never got it in the mail...

Answer: Bull carp contact support and they will email you a version to print out to put in your dash and window.

Cop: Do you have trade dress?

Driver: Huh? what dress?

Cop: Are you an Uber driver?

Driver: Uber driver? Oh god no! I'm picking up my mother arriving on Southwest. I saw people here. Is this the pickup location?

Oh snap ticket for parking in unauthorized zone or a gtfo.

Its pretty easy to spot a uber driver or lyft especially with a phone mount and app open.

Please gotta do better than that

C'mon now. Everyone has phone mounts. I say I'm not an Uber driver.
How can he prove it? (unless your pax starts loading in while you're talking to cop :rolleyes:)

Cop looks at obvious phone running app...

Or better yet, gets in your car after you "verify" your pickup.

Issues citation because he isn't as stupid as you are.

My phone would have Google maps on it.

If he gets in my car he gets the ride of his life.
You really are not very bright I guess.
Because you missed the part where I said "after you verify your pickup". You know, there you are looking for your passenger. There he is looking for his "ride".
You tell him you are his driver, the way you do every person that gets in your car.

Boom, ticket.

And all because you don't have your required tradedress.

I've never claimed to be bright. If I was, I wouldn't be driving for Uber or spend so much time in this god awful forum.

Obviously if you're caught red handed there's not much you can do.
What I'm trying to say is you can try to prevent it.
Like speeding and you spot a cop up ahead so you hit the brakes.
Any sign of anyone other than pax with luggage at pickup and I would just keep driving.
I never use trade dress so I'm always looking out for this.

I like living the life of a renegade, just like you. It adds to the excitement that I might get caught. I am also very aware as I pull up.
