The popular author Terry Pratchett, who died recently, wrote several books about a world of fantasy and magic. You might think that people living in a world like this would be free from many of the problems which we find in the “real” world – but this isn’t the case for Mr. Pratchett’s Discworld. Citizens of the large city of Ankh-Morpork still have to deal with
- Roads with potholes
- Parking wardens and wheel clamps
- Speed cameras (iconographs)
- Unexpected roadworks causing traffic chaos
- Border controls
Plus in the air-transport sector some dodgy, power assisted take-offs and landings. All this in a transport environment which includes a wide range of other submarine, marine, river, road and rail-based modes. Looks like there are jobs for road and traffic engineers all over the multiverse.
