    Well how come he possible see what's to his/her left or right with those Uber signs tattooed on the windows like they came factory stocked on the vehicle? I always wonder if they can see the mirrors with these obstructions clearly impeding visibility. I can bet the driver had the sign in the window while driver like I witness countless times in NYC.
