OK so who has Firefly in their market

Firefly is that LED screen that sits atop your car and runs visually attractive advertisements as you drive down the road. The twenty second video below is footage of a Firefly driving down the road but you don't really need to watch it because the picture below the video is all the explaining you really need. Now let's discuss how we believe Uber feels about us throwing adds in the face of their passengers without due compensation. Let's also discuss how the unit is charged and powered. Lastly, I know a person who uses the handle @NauticalWheeler who had an appointment to get a Firefly installed on is already paint wrapped vehicle. Things didn't go as planned however and the Firefly was never installed because @NauticalWheeler demanded a sign on bonus moments before the scheduled appointment.

An individual representing Firefly rode with me for the sole purpose of recruiting me. He said it payed $150 per month if I drove for two hundred hours with the sign lit up.

Is it possible to project porn on it while in motion?

Upon further research I learned that a 12V wire is run between the Firefly and the positive terminal on your car battery. A second wire is then run as a ground. This is how the Firefly powers itself. I wonder if an inline fuse is also installed or else you could need a new alternator if the son of a gun starts over drawing electricity. You know that 5G burns hotter than an egg on the cement in Vicksburg Mississippi on a hot afternoon in July.

If it pays for your gas for 2 weeks and makes the cops Uber aware that you're an Uber, why not?

Just sue them for repairs if it does anything.

Looks like a chore getting the car washed too.

Food for thought.

At the beginning they used to pay 300$+, and now it is at 150$😁 too many Firefly drivers.

It seems to me it would make you a vandalism target. And what if you hit a low overpass? Are you responsible for replacing it?

Also I would think there will be a significant number of passengers who will downrate you for it unless they are common in your market.

All over passes are at least 13 feet. I don't think even the tallest truck with a firefly on it would be that tall. Come on you need to have better perspective in your life than that. Get a clue.
Around here there are many hotels with low overhangs. Didn't mean to upset you, I just thought I'd point it out. What about the liability question though? If it is damaged are you on the hook in any way?

That things a monster. I'll just zap strap a TV to the side of the van and skip the middle man. :smiles:
 
Reporter here, working on a story about Firefly.

I’d love to hear from anyone who’s had the sign installed — particularly about a) what happens at vehicle inspection and b) how much Firefly pays.

In regard to b), they always mention the $300/month number and I’d like to know if that’s accurate across different markets, and if it’s changed over time.

If anyone’s willing to share a recent Firefly contract, I’d love to check out what it says about liability, too.

Feel free to PM me on here or [email protected]. Thanks!
