Concerns over the environment — and the utter annoyance of having to brake and accelerate frequently — have prompted one Mexican state government to embrace a "smart" speed bump that could make driving smoother, without sacrificing safety.The device, being developed by Mexico-based Decano Industries, automatically lowers into the ground when drivers go the speed limit or slower. Drive too fast, and the bump stays up."With this speed bump, people will feel rewarded for obeying the law," says Carlos Cano, the company's president.
Brilliant! I can't wait for them to make their way into the States!
