By Daniel Mussard. Every Morning, thousands of people cross the borders from Germany, France and Belgium to get to work by car, by bus or by train. And also every morning and every evening, the same scenario of being stuck in traffic; it easily sums up to 10 hours per work week for a lot of people to get to and from work. What a colossal waste of time, energy and resources.
