The “ambulance taxi” service costs $200 an hour for businessman who are in a hurry to make it to work. Ambulances are used to scatter traffic for an emergency, but companies are using this for work purposes, which have angered law enforcement. The police told the paper that they have caught on to this service after stopping one of these vehicles. “During a patrol, a medical car was stopped because it was breaking traffic rules,” said the source.

When the police asked for their names, the well-dressed citizens refused to reveal their identities.
