These gorgeous videos show the patterns of drivers in three major cities: where they’re going, and where they get stuck.
Los Angeles managed to survive Carmageddon, with some help from Ashton Kutcher and traffic updates from Waze, a service that utilizes the GPS-enabled phones of its users to compile traffic maps. A few months ago, Waze made a slick video of a day of L.A. traffic, showing where people were driving and where they were getting congested. Now, they’ve made new videos (with the help of the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts) for other, more far-flung cities: Paris, Rome, and Tel Aviv.
