Listen: Rumble Strips in Japan Play Music
Viral| | By Jason Owen
Japan is often associated with being advanced in technology and innovation, but even their roads are putting the rest of the world to shame.
In a recent video, a driver on a section of the Subaru Highway leading to the famed Mount Fuji records his vehicle as it passes over rumble strips in the middle of the road. The strips are unique in that they are spaced conspicuously to play a musical tune as you drive over them.
Really, that’d be the best way to awaken if you fell asleep behind the wheel.
Turns out California is jumping on the musical road bandwagon of their own.
