We've all sat in traffic jams and wished we could just drive right over the top of the cars blocking the way home. Unless you were the reckless owner of a giant monster truck, this seemed all but a dream.

However American mobile service provider Verizon have seemingly had the same thought and decided to create a solution. Its called the Hum Rider, a vehicle that,with the help of some powerful hydraulic legs, can lift itself above traffic.

Once completely raised, the roof of the car stands at 2.7 metres tall, allowing just enough room over the roof of a standard car and reasonable clearance of side mirrors.

A single gas-powered Honda generator that sits under the hood delivers enough electricity to the pumps to drive 408 kilos of pressure to power all the hydraulic pumps.
