New Mexico hopes ‘singing road’ curbs speeding -- Albuquerque Journal

New Mexico transportation officials are hoping an experiment along historic Route 66 will curb speeding.

Tigress Productions is creating a ‘singing road’ between Albuquerque and the mountain community of Tijeras for a new National Geographic Channel series dubbed Crowd Control. The show will debut in November.

The road uses a series of rumble strips to create music. The driver will hear the tune as long as the speed limit is obeyed. -- 10/1/2014
