My city is like a maze which lacks both street signs and traffic signals. There are many junctions which need signs and traffic signals so badly that it causes frequent traffic congestion.

When Google Map Maker was launched, my city became the fastest mapped city in the world with the help of crowdsourcing. What would take years for the local local government, the crowd can do in days or months. In fact, work is already underway by the crowd to install street signs, hopefully this will convince government officials of the sustainability of a scaled up effort to cover most confusing parts of the city.
