Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.

Everything on one app: routes, traffic jams and construction sites as well as electric charging stations on the motorways-from the federal government. The motorway app will be available from 20 July.

On 20 July, the Federal Motorway Company will launch a service app for journeys on German motorways. This was confirmed to the German Press Agency on Saturday from the environment of the project. Previously, the newspapers of the Neue Berliner Redaktionsgesellschaft (Saturday) reported about it.

According to this report, the application should display routes, traffic jams and construction sites on the smartphone, as well as electric charging stations on the highways. This is evident from internal documents of the federal Autobahn GmbH. In addition, users should have access to webcams along the route, it said. Truck drivers could find out whether there are free parking spaces and whether rest areas are equipped with toilets, showers and a restaurant. Route planners for motorists have been available for several years from Google, TomTom and Apple.
