One of the More Unusual Ways to Alleviate Road Rage

Earlier this week, we received an email from our in-house patent searcher with the subject “Daft Patent”. We were intrigued….

Upon opening the email attachment, we were presented with the US patent for “Device for Creating Wagging Motion Towards Rear of Vehicle”. And, in the spirit of Heavens to Murgitroyd where we bring you the lighter side of intellectual property, we felt we had to share this one!

Drivers often suffer from a little bit of road rage and use their lights and horn to communicate their anger. You could use a stress ball or some deep breathing exercises to calm you down. But what if you had a wagging tail attached to the rear of your car? You could express yourself and alleviate some of the tension from the situation with a little bit of humour!
