Melody Road

 There are three stretches of road in Japan that employ an interesting method to encourage people to drive the posted speed limit. (at least for a minute or so)

Check out the youtube video here:  Melody Road

I live about an hour away from the one in the video, and I’ve travelled over the other two in the past 5 years.

Do I win any prizes?

No!  What a scam!


note: I didn’t mean to drive over all of those roads; it just kind of happened like baptism, puberty, and smelly feet. I’ve shaken off 2 of these.

 double note: photo of the railing beside one of the roads that winds its way up to me ‘ouse. It’s not musical; but I’m sure if you run a stick along it, it plays “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” by Van Halen. I could be wrong; I usually am.

triple note: sorry for talking like an English person in “double note”.
