Officials Will Pave Over Cacophonic Asphalt
LINDA WERTHEIMER, Host:
Good morning, I'm Linda Wertheimer. A symphonic driving experience ends today in California. Grooves carved into a quarter-mile stretch of road in Lancaster play the "William Tell Overture" when cars drive over them. It's part of an ad campaign by Honda, which designed the road. A Honda Civic going 55 miles per hour plays the music at perfect pitch. Neighbors were not amused. They said it kept them up at night. City officials will repave the road today. It's Morning Edition.
