Well it seems that for £236.00 we can buy a set of seat covers which will turn our taxi seats into mobile electric chairs. The shocking seat covers are advertised for sale on E-Bay and are capable of giving fares a whooping 50KV shock up the backside. Now it does say that they may not be legal in some country's ,which I'm pretty sure would include the UK, but I'm sure some drivers won't be put of by the legal niceties. Drivers who have been robbed and assaulted in the past would surely love this system in their taxi, apparently all it takes is a press of a button on the dash and it's instantly the smell of frying flesh. It would be great if they were legal though, just think how some folks attitude would change towards their taxi driver. No more arguments with drunks who don't want to pay or won't get out of the car, and maybe we could just give the odd smelly fare we get a shocking reminder to take a shower.
