Abstract [en]

In the future, everyday life in traffic will be intricately meshed with city life. Today, motorways, city streets, toll roads, country roads, etc. are places where we spend a considerable amount of time, and where a large number of everyday encounters between people occur. Any road user’s journey coincides with several, sometimes hundreds or even thousands of other people’s journeys. But these encounters are brief and the interaction is slight. Mobile technologies and emergent social media provide us with new possibilities to support drivers and passengers beyond just helping them to reach their destination. We suggest that new technologies and applications could enhance social interaction in traffic and make life on the road more interesting and meaningful
