  5. Unless, MyEye…

    I’m thinking if they made a video game of that with bus-lane violators and zipper-cheaters the targets, somebody could make some coin. Be therapeutic if nothing else, eh?

    How about points earned for making a commute via alternative modalities with various hazards and mishaps to dodge? Best PM route for bikes for additional rounds?

    Ok. Maybe not.
