Every Party has a Pooper

What a bunch of babies.

Final Curtain for CA's Singing Highway

(NECN/ABC) - A highway in Lancaster, California is about to get a tune-up.

The road is designed to play music when cars drive over special grooves in the concrete. There are similar highways in Holland, Japan and Korea.

The Honda Corporation installed the grooves in the road, which are spaced to make the sound of musical notes as cars drive over them, for a commercial spot. But local residents are not liking the tune.

The highway plays the tune of the introduction of the William Tell Overture. It's not the song choice which has them up in arms -- it's the non-stop sound both night and day.

ABC's Leo Stallworth reports that Honda will return the road to its original, musically-challenged state.



Leave it to whiners to kill anything and everything even remotely interesting in this valley. My brother just moved to that very neighborhood and it is NOT that bad.

So do you hear the music when youre in the car, or to people in their homes? Where is the issue? And what is up with those dirty rat bastards? That is pretty much the coolest thing I have ever heard of.

Both...that was the problem. They designed it so that you could hear it as you drove over it, but didn't take into account that the people in the surrounding neighborhood could hear it as well.

They covered it and made another one in a less populated area.
