Instead of helicopters, roving motorcycles take you from your cab and out of the traffic jam
Not as fun as Unnabubba's "Get me outta here" traffic
that inspired this, but probably more practical due to the
use of motorcycles instead of helicopters.
People on motorcycles could cruise around traffic jams
waiting for the call and have bright lights on their
catch the eye of frustrated passenger. You've
been sitting in that cab for a half hour? Flag down (or
a "Traffic Jammers" emergency traffic jam extrication
motorcycle. When they pull up behind you, tell your cab
driver (or date)
pull over. Get out, get on, and get on your way.
You'll pay a lot more, but time is money. Plus, if you're
anything like me in a traffic jam, you're mildly insane so
this would sound like a great idea.
