Re: [carfree_cities] heavens!
- Yup, that is indeed a crane, and there is a cable attached to the car.
However, the cable is slack.
There is also a cable attached to the back of the car.
My guess is the back cable was used to load diagnostic data from the
vehicle's systems in realtime during the test, and the upper cable is a
safety to prevent it from flipping over in the event of high winds,
system failure, or operator error.
