In South Carolina, Uber Drivers Have To Break The Law To Accept Tips.

If you drive for Uber in South Carolina, apparently you can put a tip jar in your car, but don’t call it that.

Thanks to a little-noticed provision in state law, it’s illegal in South Carolina for drivers who freelance for the ride-hailing apps Uber and Lyft to accept cash. And since Uber doesn’t allow electronic tips, the only option is to skirt the law.

One more reason Uber needs an in-app tipping option.
