Thanks to the Cotter v. Lyft class action lawsuit, a check for $495 showed up in the mail last month. At first, I assumed this must be some marketing scheme. There was no way the check could possibly be real.
Before tossing the thing in the trashcan, though, I went onto some the Facebook groups for Uber/Lyft drivers…
Turns out, the check was totally legit.
What better way to spend the money, along with a small loan from a friend, than by printing revised and updated second editions of the first two Behind the Wheel zines, which I’d been wanting to do for some time. All of the text has been revised and additional content added.
Both are 60 pages long, half-sized, staple-bound, fully illustrated:
Behind the Wheel #1 features hand-drawn maps of the major neighborhoods of San Francisco. [More info on Behind the Wheel #1]
Behind the Wheel #2 features b&w photos taken around the city. [More info on Behind the Wheel #2]
Included are two stickers:
“disrupt the disruptors”
“your uber driver hates you”
(while supplies last – I also have “my other car is a taxicab” stickers – you can include a note if you prefer one kind or another or whatever you want…)
Price is $10 for BOTH – postpaid in the US.
So that’s $5 each, and I cover the shipping.
Outside the US, buyer pays shipping.
