Air superiority

Rise above the fray
  [vote for,

One hour plus traffic to get to work. I'm suspicious our traffic engineer times the lights to cusses us all to waste more gasoline - better for my city's economy So they say.

I know a blimp RV size with Briggs & Strattons can bypass all the traffic I see every day. I would deflate it in the parking lot. - I need a pilots license to even dare dream to attempt this. Blimps / drones - big time difference legally

       //an average speed that is significantly less than the speed limit//
I've met some roads that (seem to...) have the lights sequenced for faster than the speed limit. You can only "get the run" if you drive at 60km/h...

       Based on reading the title, I completely misunderstood what this idea was going to be about. I thought it would be an idea about how to present a sort of fake, acted superiority - in the same way as "Air Guitar" is a sort of pretend guitar playing.

       Well, no, it's definitely a fake/pretend touchscreen computing device ...
