A Dutch company, PAL-V, says it's only two years away from making available to consumers of what they describe as a "flying motorcycle".

It's actually more like a trike with built-in helicopter.

Dubbed, "Gyrocopter", it's hoped it will solve traffic jams by allowing owners to lift up into the air, and over the cars.


It might work if the Gyrocopter was so expensive that only a few could afford them. Otherwise, if everyone could afford one, there'd be traffic jams in the air, and the roads would be wide open.

Here's the irony of all this...

Governments could already allow many people to avoid traffic jams if they made motorcycle lane-splitting legal.

Yet, here's a company that wants the average Joe to fly Gyrocopters above traffic? Is this more safe than allowing motorcycles to lane-split?

  3. Lane splitting on a motorcycle? Too many people talking on their cell phones and weaving all over the lane for this to be safe.
