by Categorized: Apps, cars, Government Date:

If you are stuck in traffic, you could take to Twitter or Facebook, but will anyone besides your friends and followers read it?

21265_10151640998621171_1521854591_nWired reports on a way to get attention in higher places. Called the I’m Stuck App, it notifies your elected representatives when you are stuck in transit. The idea being that tie ups and delays may be part of larger problems in America’s infrastructure, and by contacting  representatives in Congress action may result.

The app was developed by the bi partisan infrastructure advocacy group Building America’s Future.
