Cow Taxi.

Tired of being robbed all the time, Chilean taxi driver Juan Geraldo covered every square inch of his taxi with black and white spotted cowhides:

A Chilean taxi driver has come up with a new way to fight assaults: make your vehicle so conspicuous that nobody would dare try to rob you.

After being robbed several times, Juan Geraldo upholstered and covered every square inch of his car's interior with black and white spotted cowhides, including the steering wheel and ceiling.

He then decorated the interior with stuffed toy cows, and added a horn that moos. The visual effect is even more impressive at night, when the black and white taxi interior is set off from floor to ceiling by a flood of neon light.

"The effect was immediate. They haven't robbed me since," Mr Geraldo said.
