Solar Freakin Roadways

You may have seen this video floating around other social media sites, but if you haven’t taken the time to watch it, you definitely should. I think this is a really cool idea and the video is pretty funny.

I was very intrigued by the whole concept, but I could not shake the image of the moose crossing the road. Moose in roadways are a legitimate concern to us Mainers. In drivers ed we had to watch an entire video on the dangers of encountering a moose in the road, which sounds kind of silly, but the video was actually wicked frightening. Moose are dangerous because they are aggressive and top heavy. So if you come close to one, it might charge. And if you hit one they fall right on top of your car and can crush it. Moose are also very hard to see at night because of their dark fur and non-reflective eyes. So it is actually a legitimate issue and who would have thought a solar freaking roadway could solve it?!
