Feeling nauseous? Have a baby on board? Oftentimes, cab drivers drive way faster than we’d like them to, and some actually get cranky if you tell them to slow down. Those in Japan are pretty lucky though, because there’s a car service called Turtle Taxi that aims to get you to your destination at the slower speed that you prefer.
Each Turtle Taxi is equipped with a button near the passenger’s seat. If you want the driver to slow down for whatever reason, just hit that button and he’ll drive at a slower speed. A turtle is displayed on the windshield to alert surrounding vehicles. It’s definitely an interesting concept and is quite popular in Japan, specially with pregnant ladies and with the elderly.
