Uber Beats Lyft Again! – They Both Put Illegal Chalk Ads on Our Sidewalks, But Only Lyft Gets Busted – Plus, a ShakedownWednesday, February 4th, 2015
A couple years back I passed by this scene on Market, so then I contacted the Uber people by email on my cell…
…and I was all, “Can you do that? I don’t think you can do that.”
Why? Because it’s a chalk ad on a Frisco sidewalk and that aint kosher. I mean, I didn’t know for sure, maybe somebody had approved this and the Uber people had permits, who knows. I was simply “issue-spotting,” as they say.
So then, a half-hour later, the Uberers had these ads hastily obliterated, more or less, as best they could.
And that was that, back in 2013.
And now comes Lyft in 2015 with hopsc0tch chalk on the Streets of San Francisco:
Except that SFGov is now lowering the boom on Lyft.
(And there might be some shakedown to take money from Lyft to give it to those ugly “SF Beautiful,” people, who are now infamous for suing the City and County of San Francisco? That sounds wrong.)
Anyway, Uber beats Lyft, once again.
