Google Maps Thinks Guy Pulling Red Wagon Filled With Phones is a Major Traffic Jam

Artist Simon Weckert borrowed phones from friends and rental companies until he had acquired 99 devices, which he piled into a little red wagon.

He had effectively tricked the system into thinking a series of large buses were crawling back and forth.
