Charleston police plan to sting UberX drivers, Uber says it will pay fines

After meeting with local taxi companies concerned with the ride-sharing app UberX, the Charleston Police Department plans to roll out a series of efforts that would discourage local drivers from offering the car service [...] Police also plan to engage in sting operations to begin issuing warnings to UberX drivers who are violating a range of local and state codes by driving their personal vehicles for fares. Eventually, undercover police will be handing them citations with a maximum fine of $1,049 instead of warnings.

Will Greenville, Columbia, and Myrtle Beach police follow suit?
