PAPER DRIVERS: If You Actually Pay Bridge Tolls Every Day in the Bay Area, You’re a Big Sucker – Presenting FasTrak UBER / Lyft-Style

Gentle Reader, is these UBERs and Lyft cars new?

No, they is not.

And that means that they should have real license plates by now, right?

I think I saw all these cars on the Streets of San Francisco over the course of a few hours. There were more I came across, I’m sure.

But with great plates come great responsibility, meaning that with real metal plates you’ll get busted for not paying bridge tolls, due to license plate scanners.

Now I understand that paper driver is already a phrase, meaning something else, but to me, a paper driver is one who drives across as many local bridges per day as possible over the next year or two afore there’s a chance of actual enforcement starting.

We might get some penalty starting in 2019, but IDK how effective it will be.

Oh well.

Enjoy paying your bridge tolls, suckers, while the UBERs and Lyfts ahead and behind you cross over the bay for free…
