Chinese Motorists Are Paying People To Sit In Traffic Jams For Them

I don't know about you, but I kinda relish getting stuck in a traffic jam. Scoping people out, playing some Angry Birds, finding that perfect Phil Collins drum solo... but not for 10 hours. Figures, then, that Chinese companies are renting jam-stooges out.

So what does the driver of the car do, when someone's sitting in their Honda, fiddling with all the radio pre-sets? They whizz away on the back of motorcycles, of course, weaving in and out of the traffic to get to that all-important meeting. They may be $US60 lighter, but that doesn't matter to the money-rich, time-poor Chinese who are literally lining up for this service. [Yahoo News]
