How can we solve traffic jams, emissions and accidents? Self-driving cars!

Created in 12 hours for #TrafikJam, the winning entry Error-Prone is cute little game of chaos and carnage made for 26 people to play around one keyboard. The end result illustrates perfectly how self driving cars are vastly superior to their human counterparts in terms of traffic grid lock, efficiency and avoiding road accidents.

The game itself is very simple, 26 cars autonomous cars driving around in a neat little circle. When you press a letter on the keyboard you assume control and almost immediately you will see the effects your erratic human driving causing grid lock or even accidents. The more people play (up to 26, if you can fit and have a good enough keyboard) the more chaos ensues.

The only way to win is to not play at all.
