organ transplant supply/demand equaliser

  [vote for,

This is a market-based approach to the often unequal supply of organs to transplant and demand for those organs. It is a system which links hospitals to local dynamic traffic signs and responds to shortages of transplant organs by temporarily raising the speed limit for motorcycles in the vicinity of the local specialist organ transplant hospital.

       The system could also operate cycle lane and pedestrian crossing lights slightly out of sequence.

       This has the potential to respond very quickly. A longer term feedback loop could be constructed by raising/lowering the training standard of trauma surgeons.

       ... or indeed by raising/lowering the training standard of motorcyclists.   

       Raising the training standard of car drivers would also influence outcomes (lowering it simply isn't possible as it's already at rock bottom).

       no no no, heroin overdose = no breathing. Hypoxic organs aren't much use. Neither are electrically cooked ones.

       It's important to get the right match between donor and recipient, in terms of blood groups and probably other such things.   

       In this era of Facebook-scale databases of every living human, it seems feasible to have drivers and riders register their blood group etc in a way that can be linked to their licence plates, so that the speed limit increases can be targeted more precisely.
