music is everywhere

A road in New Mexico will play a song if drivers go the speed limit

To get drivers in New Mexico to slow down, a road that plays music is being installed along Route 66.

It's set to stretch from Albuquerque to a mountain town called Tijeras, and will have rumble strips that play a song as long as the driver is going the speed limit, The Associated Press reports. The road is being built by Tigress Productions for a new show on the National Geographic Channel called Crowd Control.

New Mexico Transportation Secretary Tom Church says the road is a fun way to reward people for going to speed limit, and also a loud way to wake up drivers who might fall asleep behind the wheel. There are just a handful of singing roads like this in the world, with one made famous by the Honda commercial in the video below. --Catherine Garcia
