How to troll Google Maps on a national level
October 3, 2017
If you happen to look at Israel on Google maps, on Yom Kippur, you would notice something interesting. The entire country is red with traffic. These are no ordinary traffic jams.
So what is going on? Something weird happens on Yum Kippur in Israel. For 24 hours, from dusk to dusk, nobody drives. The religious and atheists alike take a break from their cars. The roads and highways are empty and everyone takes to the streets. You’ll see kids biking on deserted highways, people just hanging out in the middle of an intersection. It feels post-apocalyptic and it’s amazing. The silence hits you like a wall.
Hell, I would make it a monthly event.
