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.
