AG is Aargau, the canton to the West of Zürich. ZG is Zug, the canton to the south of Zürich. SG is Saint Gallen, southeast of Zürich.
I'm well aware of these quirky cantons. Thank you. Also, let's not fabricate an alternate reality for possible explanations for these vans at 7 AM. If they were employees, they wouldn't shop at 7 AM nor bring vans. Also, when there's plenty of talk about workers from Eastern Europe, EU, non-EU migration, why allow over 100k Zurich jobs being offshored to other cantons?

Also, why is driver of AI number plate never a woman? Are they not allowed to drive?

Never heard of working shifts? And people who want to shop before they go to work of after work?

Not commenting on that remark on AI, you do know that a lot of rentals have AI?

Most AI cars you see around are rentals (they must have some tax deal going on there, basically all rentals are AI), so you're probably seeing traveling business travelers with company reimbursement or hired drivers if you're seeing anyone traveling alone in them, categories which are predominantly male.
