23. Fake Ambulance Taxis to Get Through Traffic Faster
No matter where you go in the world, an ambulance siren means one thing: There is an emergency, so you better pull over and let the vehicle through traffic. In Russia, millionaires figured out an ingenious way to beat traffic. They purchase fake ambulances, and retrofit the interior to look similar to a luxury limousine. Then, their drivers turn on the siren, and speed through traffic in a fraction of the normal waiting time. Not only does this help save them time, but it also protects them from potential thieves and paparazzi much more than a limousine.
Here in the United States, you could never get away with this, because it’s illegal to impersonate a first responder. So if a fake ambulance were to ever get caught, they would be in huge trouble, and potentially go to jail. Please don’t try this at home, guys.
