When speeding tickets don't work...

When speeding tickets do not hamper drivers from speeding, the novelty of making music with their wheels could.  

The New Mexico Department of Transportation added grooves in the road of Route 66 between Albuquerque and Tijeras.  They work just like the rumble strips or "drunk bumps".  As you drive over the precisely positioned grooves in the road they vibrate your car to create different pitches from notes to "America the Beautiful".  You just have to slow down to its speed limit of 45 mph to hear it better.  

What a great idea since it is a desolate stretch of road.  This innovation should keep drivers alert, so as not to miss that musical quarter-mile stretch.

Now here is your reason to travel through Route 66.
