gypsy taxis (black cars, 黑车, rickshaws, touts)

Can be usefull in certain situations:

i.e.

End of day at Canton Fair, there are about 500 people waiting in
line to get a taxi from the queue. Look out on the street and
you see some "black" taxis and real taxis hanging out. They want
fixed amount, which would be double the normal fare, but you
save standing in line for 1+ hours.
