Why People Rely on Google Maps
Some people really struggle with remembering landmarks, routes connecting two destinations, and paying attention to the route while traveling. And that’s why Google Maps is as crucial for them as Dora’s backpack to Dora.
But that doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate some updates in the app. Google has announced that the Maps app will be revamped and made more eco-friendly. But how exactly would that look like? Let’s have a look.
Eco-Friendly Google Maps
Since many drivers rely on Google Maps, they will only follow the route that the app recommends. Even though it’s often the shortest possible route, but it’s not necessarily one which will cause the least fuel-burning carbon release in the air. However, it’s turning over a new leaf. Google Maps has a new feature that offers the least carbon-intensive ways to reach a destination which takes approximately as long as the fastest route.
This is a major breakthrough in the greener ways of living that environmentalists are adopting because car travel is a major contributor to air pollution. Vehicles release hydrocarbons that deplete the ozone layer and lead to several environmental hazards such as smog, global warming and acid rains.
Low-Emission Zone Alerts
As revolutionary as this sounds, this is not all that Google is doing for the users and the planet at large. There will be alerts installed in the app that tell drivers when they’re crossing through low-emission zones. This will be a major improvement in the way car drivers become conscious about their daily intake of pollutants from the air. By inducing mindfulness and greater consciousness toward environmental concerns, Google Maps is charting a new path for greener commuting.
