"Chris has been waging a three-year-long battle with the City of Austin over his idea for a green energy business giving pedestrians rides in low-speed electric vehicles -- all on a 'tips only' basis. He does not charge for these services, as the mobile marketing company generates its revenue from advertising on the sides of the vehicles.There is no law actually prohibiting him from operating this business, it is true, but, the enforcement side of the city -- the police -- have determined that the lack of a law regulating a business constitutes operating in violation of a law."
