wildcat
 v.— «Illegal solicitation of rides, or “wildcatting” as it is known, is a persistent problem in San Ysidro, said Ricardo Castro, of Greyhound Lines Inc. Castro, who is a board member of the San Ysidro Border Transportation Council, said wildcatters take away customers from businesses who operate legally. Many wildcatters carry no insurance, don’t undergo drug testing and don’t know the emergency procedures taught when applying for state certification.» —“Van driver pleads not guilty after certification sting” by Janine Zúñiga Union-Tribune (San Diego, California) May 12, 2006.
