Ok what's the deal with permanently sticking those darn decals on our rear windows? Can't front windshield removable trade dress signs suffice anymore?? I'll be darned if I am going to remain a rolling billboard for Uber/Lyft on my off grid time as well...plus neighbors friends families girlfriends can't know I moonlight as a driver when I won't be able to hide the evidence after driving ohhhh no!

I ended up keeping the rear Lyft in place....

Can't be bothered to remove or swap with fuber when needed

way too much work to retract and redeploy rear sunshade, and it'll break the mechanism eventually = probably $1k or smthn to replace....or tear up the heater wires and/or rear tint, also surely expensive

I too am very embarrassed to have anyone know my life has come to this,having to drive for uber..
I had my logos laminated and I just hold them in place with Velcro I only use the front window logos .. My logos are up only when I pick up the pax.. then I take them down
I'm not going to advertise for uber/Lyft and like I said in not proud of it ...
Also I have never heard anyone say they received a ticket for not displaying the logos excluding LAX

Had a new driver appear in the neighborhood. Noticed the Uber trade dress on the back window of their Prius. The trade dress was properly positioned by the way. The car didn't move for 8 days. Each day more and more of the trade dress peeled back until it finally just fell off.

Why even do it if your gonna be embarrassed about it? You should never be embarrassed about any hustle your doing to put food on the table for yourself or family. NEVER give a damn about what anyone thinks. The day you always care about what others think is the day you lose your self worth. There are plenty of people who wish they was in your shoes or just being lazy asses with a hand out.
Just yesterday had this twenty something young man asking me for $5 bucks. Wtf!!! They don't even ask for change anymore.

Amen!!!!! I leave mine on the window because it's just annoying taking it off and on. I'm not ashamed of what's paying my bills and feeding me

I've been using only a single trade dress sign in the middle of my dashboard for the last few weeks without issue. The CPUC rules aren't easily compatible with the LAX rules that prohibit dual trade dress (Uber and Lyft). It's unreasonable to have to switch signs when the passenger is in the backseat already, and my tinted rear window makes a sign invisible anyway. When I'm offline I don't need to be advertising the platforms either.

If I get fined $1000, so be it. I refuse to perform actions that put myself and potentially my rider in danger, like trying to suction cup an airport placard to the windshield when there's no safe place to park.

I was recently pulled over by LAPD for making an illegal U-turn. I told the officer immediately that I was an Uber driver on the way to a pickup. My legal documents were in order and I was let off with a warning, with zero mention of my signage.
