Man Makes His Own Toll Road In England

After a landslide occurred on Kelston Road in England, several small towns were cut off from the city of Bath. There’s a detour, but it’s 14 long miles to get around. The reconstruction will take at least 3 more months. One man decided to take advantage of the detour by making his own toll road, explains Tom Scott. Genius! He owned the land by the closed road and turned the 14 mile detour into a one minute detour. Of course you have to pay. His very short toll road is even on Google Maps!

Solar Roadways Is The Road Of The Future

A lot has changed since the 1960’s. Our phones, computers, and cars are all much more advanced. But one thing is still relatively archaic. Our roads. Scott and Julie Brusaw want to change all that. For years they have been working on a project to battle so many problems we currently face. Their product is the Solar Roadway.

The Solar Roadway is to the road as the smartphone is to the rotatory phone. Their product will be a roadway that never needs salting or clearing from ice and snow as it is heated. The LED’s under the road can dynamically warn motorists of oncoming trouble. And best of it, the roads all work as solar panels to obtain free electricity from the sun. These are just a few of the amazing benefits of their new solar road.
