Cab Share: What are the current barriers preventing people from sharing taxis?

My idea is to develope a means to share cab rides that not only save money for the customers but also provides increased revenues for drivers. What would be the environmental benefits? And do these benefits outweigh the current barriers? How could you make this idea financially viable?

      Apr 17 2012: I agree with you Hans, that safety is a big issue. Maybe if you would create kind of a community where people have to sign up first. That could provide a certain safety improvement. Otherwise I don't really know how to improve safety, do you?
      Most of the taxis are equiped with cameras which would provide a certain base safety for the driver, but also for the customers.
