@yogthos I’m designing an app that allows you to pay dozens of people some money to roll their smartcarts slowly on each street of your planned route so you can enjoy empty roads on your way back from the CBD. Just like what the car ads promised.

@yogthos oh, I thought it was about traffic lights relying on Google data.
