When an entire industry is badly designed

Ever sat in traffic wondering how it came about and why it needs to exist in the first place?

How ironic.

But that’s not what majority ever wanted.

What people want is to get from A to B in the safest and quickest possible way.

So it is no wonder that the car industry is subject to major disruptive trends including car sharing, autonomous vehicles and other similar initiatives.
