#1840: StopScreen

Given the frequency of traffic jams, today’s invention is a way to render them less excruciatingly boring.

Cars would be equipped with a screen embedded within their boot lids.

When a car became motionless, its screen would automatically start to show a brief movie to the vehicle stopped immediately behind.

The length of the movie chosen by the system would be appropriate to a prediction made of the jam duration by communicating with traffic cameras.

This channel would inevitably include adverts and local driving information as well.
