How The Wheel Turned

Some inventions live forever; you can keep improving upon them but the original remains the basis for future innovations. One such revolutionary invention is the wheel. Though invented centuries ago during the Mesopotamian Civilisation era, it turned things around in a big way.

But today, wheels and the vehicles they roll, apart from being a great source of convenience, are also associated with deaths. According to government estimates, during 2015, as many as 1,622 people died in road accidents in Delhi alone.

Wheels of yore transformed to move vehicles. Vehicles in hordes became traffic. And the rest, as they say, is history. MakaaniQ tracks the history of traffic movement across the world.
