Here at RSG, we’re firmly on the side of drivers getting paid, however they choose to do it. Whether it’s by suggesting passengers visit a family bakery (like reader Kyle does), putting a mobile vending machine in their car (with Cargo), or wrapping their car in advertising, if it makes drivers more money, we’re for it (the legal stuff, that is!). Senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur, however, recently found out this might not be okay with local authorities. Here’s what drivers need to know.
Recently we were contacted by loyal Rideshare Guy reader and driver Greg (not his real name) who told us that he received a citation from the SFO Airport Commission. Did you know that we, the drivers, are prohibited from using our cars to advertise while driving on San Francisco Airport (SFO) property? In fact, no advertising is allowed.
If you did not know this, you’re not alone. In this article, we will delve into this recent development and see if we can make sense of an unusual and contradictory situation.
