…and this is how our story begins…

Welcome to The Slid Project! We’re very glad you could make it here (how did that happen, by the way?). We’re just about to begin a tale about something we currently don’t know exactly how it is. But what we do know is that its story will be worth telling…

This is about something many people around the world experiment almost every day: traffic jams and parking problems. In fact, it’s hard to clearly define our antagonist, as it is composed of several situations tightly packed together: lack of space to move, wasted time, wasted fuel and an array of heavy mental states were the first few that crossed our minds. So this is the modern monster our project has the mission to curb.

We call our hero “Slid”. We imagine it as a vehicle capable to slide through the traffic, just like bikes and motorcycles do. But we came to think those vehicles still lack some requirements to become the real solution to the conflict, particularly in certain situations. Thus, the aim of The Slid Project is to propose a solution based in our perspective of the conflict and its nature, instead of reviewing or reinforcing the measures that are currently being applied in our cities. We want something different.

So here we are! …and this is how our story begins…
