Do Uber and Lyft require drivers to display the window placards? Why don't I always see them?

    Uber send you placards in the mail for you to display.  There was a note in it that it's required where I am (Boston), so I put it up.  

    Isn't it required to pick up at some airports?  It's some consumer protection law or something.

      The trade dress is supposedly required in Seattle too, although I don't generally use it if just Ubering around town.  I will, however, make sure to put them in the windows when dropping off/picking up at the airport, because the port police can be dicks and will issue BIG tickets for not complying with airport regulations requiring them. 

      They're ugly and annoying, but a ticket for a couple hundred bucks isn't worth it.

      Is she being serious?  or is she mocking it?  "it's sleak, it's light, and best of all.....it light sup!"  It sound slike a infomercial.

    I've seen them like once.  I thought it was the driver being cute.
