What it Looks Like to Completely Turn Off for a Day

October 4, 2012

What would it look like if your entire city shut down for the day? What if no cars, busses, or motorcycles were allowed to operate? What if no one picked up their cell phones for 24 hours? In Israel last Wednesday during Yom Kippurthe Jewish Day of Atonementthat's exactly what happened. And that's what happens every year.

The result of their early morning outing was of course, peace of mind, but also this visual representation of what it looks like to turn off for the day. "It's pretty amazing when you think about it," said Eldar.

What would you do with an entire highway to yourself?
