How do you get people to stop ignoring red lights?

For four years, each day I took the same tram to art academy. Why would you then look out the window with curiosity when there is no reason to expect anything new. I decided to change the daily journey for my fellow passengers and myself. I wouldn’t move the tramway track, but maybe I could add something. Make something so that what already exists would look very different now.

Being “a regular” has its rewards, such as surprisingly meaningful relationships with employees.
The “regulars” at this bank experienced firsthand just how far those relationships can go when the bank temporarily turned its ATMs into “Automated Thanking Machines.”
Turkish company Pugedon recently introduced a vending machine that releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.
This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food.
