How about a traf­fic light auc­tion be­tween drivers?

7 Days in Dubai - - LIFE -

Now that we will have to pay for po­lice ser­vices, why not up the ante and hold Traf­fic Light Auc­tions? Cars queued wait­ing for the lights to change could bid for it via sms, whilst cars hav­ing the green light would bid against them to keep it open. Pulling up be­hind the queue and flash­ing your lights would sig­nal a high-stakes dou­bling. Pedes­tri­ans could out­bid the lot, turn all the sig­nals to red, and jay­walk at their leisure with­out hav­ing to worry about be­ing fined. Doug Dubai
