** Speaking of traffic, motorways at peak time, unless modded, have about the same traffic as country roads in the middle of the night. Notably the M25 road around London is usually at a standstill at the best of times. Presumably they realised that even with generous AI cars that actually get out of the way, they wouldn't be able to realistically simulate that much traffic flow without issues.

** AI cars are very definitely IRL cars except for their logo. The German police car, for example, is ''very definitely'' a 2012 Volkswagen Passat... but the logo is two vertically opposite V's. Other clearly identifiable AI cars include the Ford Mondeo, the SEAT Toledo and the BMW 1-series.

Added DiffLines:

** Update 1.30 added timezones. While it only supports two timezones at the moment -- UTC in Great Britain and CEST elsewhere -- it can be seen as the first step towards possible future expansions towards Spain or Russia.
