London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/22/2015 -- One of London's latest technology trials is transforming the way London black cabs are seen and used; making things easier for other road users rather than harder! Carried out by Transport for London, the process involves fitting 200 cabs with taxi-top signage which tells nearby vehicles and pedestrians the areas in the city facing traffic problems. This innovative use of taxis suggests that the authorities are striving to look into new ways to increase road efficiency – seen as desirable by many who use the capital.
The technology installed into the top of the cab's signage highlights the great potential unlocked when combining transport with digital advertising. At current, the boards installed allow the taxis to show information of delays in up to 50 areas in London; and there are plans to expand the system. There is speculation that it could be used in other congested cities too.
Keeping the public informed of congestion whilst on the roads could be seen as an innovative way of increasing traffic efficiency. As drivers take in the information, they will be in turn more likely to avoid affected areas – and less traffic heading towards these areas as a result, means the congestion is more likely to clear quickly.
Top Removals work frequently on London's roads, offering a fast removal service throughout the city. They are frequent commentators on news items and a spokesperson had this to say:
"The development of new traffic advertising on taxis shows that the public expect efficiency on the roads, even if they are busy; businesses have to be adaptable and make the most of their resources. This is something we've doing for years here at Top Removals. We understand the city can be congested, but we take the best routes and utilise our vehicles to provide customers with moving services to suit their time constraints. The new taxi developments offer another welcome method of avoiding those busy places."
