This is how things started, back in aught-twelve – I thought it was just another hipster thing, but no, it was Lyft.
But after a little rain or a little urine from a taxi driver got on those things, well, this plan wasn’t sustainable.
This glowstache worked out much better:
It too is gone now, replace by the Latest Thing.
Designed by the brand creatives behind Virgin America, the Glowstache is the first Lyft icon to light up streets nationwide. Each one helps increase awareness of Lyft in your city, meaning more demand for your rides, and no chance of getting lost in a crowd. The status symbol was produced solely for top Lyft drivers.

All the deets:
A Scoot Quad is a mini electric car that can carry two people. Say hello to the Quads and get ready to explore the city in a whole new way.
• Top speed of 25 MPH
• Range of 40 city miles
• $1 of electricity to fill ‘er up from a normal wall outlet
• Gets the equivalent of 250 MPG (after doing the math to convert the electrical energy to dirty gas equivalent)
• Produces 6% of the CO2 per mile of a car (including the emissions from the power plants that make the electricity)
• US drivers license and Scoot membership required
• Carries two people — that’s what the backseat is for!
• No freeways, bridges, or roads with speed limits over 35 MPH
• Quads are $6 up to 30 min, 20¢ per minute afterwards.

Here’s a robot car in The Richmond:
And here’s what John Law has to say:
5200. (a) When two license plates are issued by the department for
use upon a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which
they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.
I’m thinking there are reasons you’d especially want an FLP on Uber’s experimental cars, but maybe that’s just me…
