“Congestion pricing,” which is essentially a fancy name for tolls charged to vehicles entering certain regions, isn’t exactly the most exciting topic to cover — or easiest to explain.

However, reporter Rich Barrabi of News 12 Long Island and Gregory Martin Stevens and Drew Singh teamed up to create a explainer package that combined multiple standups shot around the city with composited augmented reality graphs, video clips, pull quotes and more superimposed over background elements.

The segment was also aired across the News 12 family of channels.
