“I’m telling you, the sign works,” Mr. Lopez said. “Most of the ticket agents are cool, and respect that we’re out here making a living. They might not have much sympathy for some big corporation, but if they know we’re paying our own tickets, some of them cut us a little slack. Other drivers I know have copied my sign.”
