[Balin] Technology 0

Postby Balin » Mon Aug 10, 2020 11:21 pm

A woman, while operating her car, pulls out her phone. By doing so, she avoids getting in trouble. How?

(EDIT: OOATP rules no longer apply.)

Is she using the phone to document the cause of her lateness? Such as a red light at EVERY intersection? Or a protest? Something else blocking the road?

is she driving her car? Yes The car she uses for her work? Same FA Google maps car? No a racing car? No an electric car? Irrel

Is her lateness caused by traffic: volume? Speed? Type? Congestion? Accident? Rerouting? I'd say volume + speed + type. It's a very specific circumstance.

Is her employer somehow causing the issue that she is filming? No, same FA

Weather relevant? No
