      Now the question is whether Lyft will provide them for free to all the drivers.

        WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT.  LOL.  Dude, this is Lyft drivers saying, "eff it" and selling the Amp lights that are being "distributed" by Lyft.

        Lyft driver; "What the heck is this box from Lyft?"

        Wife of the driver: "Oh, honey, you've been working so hard.  Didn't you say you completed 250 successful trips?  What could it be?  Cash bonus?  Maybe a gift package?"

        Driver: "Umm, it seems to be a box.  Pencil case?  It doesnt' seem to open. Wait, it lights up though"

        "Oh, to get better visibility and get more fares.  So you can make more money."

        "No, I get requests on the app.  No one hails us on the street."

        "Oh...."

        "Well, some schmucks are buynig them on eBay for $70. Sweet."

          I love the part of the story where they look down at this LED light and think, "Oh, this is what's important to people from California."

            followed by, "Will you go tell the kids it isn't food, and we have nothing to eat tonight?  or should I ?"

          No, you have it mistaken.  The unit dispenses money like a gumball machine.  I think every hour.  Maybe two.  I could be wrong.

      Are we allowed to install these things on the outside of our cars?  Like on topf my car?  Yes, this is a serious question.

    These actually look really neat. I was justs reading over "AMPs" on Lyfts site. I love how they will sync to the riders app, calling them by name, etc.
