Melody road

The grooves in this Japanese road produce tunes when the tires of your car run over the asphalt. The sound quality is best when driving at 50 km/h (28 mph), so the idea is to control the driver's speed voluntary.

Man, that would annoy the hell out of anyone after a while. Also, i think tires will wear out sooner because of this.

Creative idea, but it sounds like a very bad tuba player.

Its only a small stretch of road, and im pretty sure you can avoid that road on your "commute", looks like a tourist attraction.
Its just a bit of fun and might get ppl wondering about how it works and the little bit of science behind it or get them thinking creatively.
Better than irish councils "creative" ideas for irish roads, we dont have grooves, we have pot holes, more percussion, less wind instrument.

Clever concept. Add these grooves in a NASCAR track & we can really have some fun. Get the drivers to sing & you have Karaoke.
