I agree. I was in NYC and needed to get to the airport quickly. I told the cabbie how much of a tip (flat amount) he would get if he would get me to the airport by X time. He did and he got his tip.
PS No hazardous driving was involved or required, but he really took the fastest way. Shortest trip to Laguardia I ever had.

A similar thing happened to me. I was going on a trip and I left my plane tickets home. I took a cab from Jersey City to Central NJ because I reasoned it was the fastest way. I told the cabbie to step on it and there would be an extra tip in it for him. He made it to my car in unbelievable time and I gave the guy a $50 tip. He then said "America is a great country!" in some sort of arab accent...
