Technical details

Typescript, SVG and a simple state machine for each car (You can call it AI if you want ;-). The cars are not very smart. The code is not very pretty. Edge cases are not handled well. And it performs badly on low-CPU devices. Memory leaks? Probably yes. Find the source code here.
