The UK developed a “Fix My Street” web application as FLOSS. Source code is on GitHub (GNU Affero General Public License). It’s now being copied by Switzerland and Norway is using it to allow citizens to report potholes and such, giving government the ability to respond quickly and to keep on top of the overall situation with roads. Beautiful.
See what can be done when governments share instead of paying the same outfit repeatedly to buy some stuff that doesn’t work as well? Also the roads get fixed sooner rather than later.
