Internet Buzzing Over ‘Redneck Uber’
A video originally shot by Billy Big Rig shows an interesting (and illegal) situation in the Tampa area. The video shows an elderly woman in a wheelchair riding in the back of a pickup truck that's speeding through city streets. At one point in the video, it looks like the woman just barely cleared a red light at an intersection.
According to FOX13 News in Tampa, the woman is accompanied in the back of the truck by a couple of pieces of lumber, a tire, a workbox, and what appears to be a traffic cone.
Police remind drivers that it is illegal for someone to ride in the back of a truck unless there are seats and seatbelts installed.
