    How effective do you think a sign saying video and audio surveillance in use would have against bad behavior or scammers?

    Thought you were talking about the video and audio surveillance Uber conducts on us. Besides the tracking Uber does even when our apps. Are turned off.

    Does Uber watching you modify YOUR behavior ?
    I know the Uber red speed dot slows me down.

    the same way it deters a drunk at 7-11 from being an a-hole. None and more none

    I think its a great deterrent, just like signs on properties saying "this is protected by this company" to stop burglars.

    Yikes. I think if I had to put up with so much shanannigans I needed a sign, I'd rethink this whole gig.

    When I started driving, I made up a sign that had all the usual notifications. One of these reads "Smile, You're on camera."

    I didn't have a camera at first. I had several folks ask where the camera was. They certainly noticed the sign!

    Naturally, you don't want to create an "us vs. them" atmosphere. At any mention of the camera, I mention the need to protect myself from all the bad drivers out there. This closes the topic in a friendly way.

    Along with the camera signs I have posted "No minors!"

    In California, it requires both parties to consent to audio recording.

    You forgot the most important and hygiene rule: "Employees must wash their hands with soap before returning to work."

    As long as there is a sign that is clear you should be fine. Your car is your place of business, its the same concept as walking into target or Best Buy with their surveillance.

    California's wiretapping law is a "two-party consent" law. California makes it a crime to record or eavesdrop on any confidential communication, including a private conversation or telephone call, without the consent of all parties to the conversation. See Cal. Penal Code § 632.

    The Uber guy that got beat up last year is now being sued because he videoed the altercation. The video is legal, the audio is not sign or no sign.

    Again the same concept applies to any place of business. If you don't want to give consent then leave the Uber car and leave Best Buy or target. Because Best Buy target and Uber cars have merchandise worth enough to count as a federal charge if stolen.

    But you dont need a sign if its just Video recording, you would need a sign for audio recording in a place of business. Its so silly. Then again this Penal Code wont apply to recording in your own house with things such as a nanny cam etc..

    Not in wonderful Commonwealth of Virginia! One-party consent law, and I know I'm recording hehe. I'm wondering if putting a sign will help deter bad behavior before it happens. I don't just want to record it, I'm hoping to prevent something bad happening all together.
