Traffic Flow

 Obey the rules of the road!

In Traffic Flow geometry a line must obey certain limitations on where it can travel. For example a popular subsection of this category is Taxicab Geometry, where lines can only travel on a grid only on the rows and columns that have integers. 

Well known shapes can transform into something interesting when forced to obey these rules.


1. Lines must travel along the defined grid.

2. Lines may only make 90o turns.

3. There are multiple shortests paths between two points.
