I'm very skeptical, considering here in Ohio we scrape our roads down routinely in the winter months. Especially as I've often seen plow blades striking sparks against the concrete... Best regards, -- Cal Frye, www.calfrye.com Be an Internet Sceptic/ Stop. Think. Connect. www.stopthinkconnect.org
Same issue with snow plows here too. However, the demonstration pilot is on a bike path next to the road. If they continue doing that, it might help alleviate issues with the plows. Much smaller equipment is used to clear separate bike paths (if they are even cleared at all). Mike On May
Interesting potential source of future EV energy: http://phys.org/news/2015-05-solaroad-path-electricity-yield.html I'm a bit skeptical, though...by its very nature, anything put on the road is going to have to be a lot more durable and therefore expensive than what you'd put on a rooftop.
