:evil:

Not only lethal but they must be neuclear powered as well, up to 50 kilowatt from a passing car!! (please tell the environmentalists)
That would be enough to power up quite a few homes, or over 800 "normal"lightbulbs :idea: ...

Someone ought to check their maths.

Sent an e-mail pointing out that dropped oil and water and traffic lights is not a good mix at the best of times. Adding a moveable ramp will make life even more interesting.

Awaiting reply.

"Thank you for your email concerning the power ramp. The ramp demonstrated
is for use in very low speed locations for example entrance and exits to car
parks, shopping malls and similar applications. In any event its movement
is far less than demonstrated. The entire Ramp is covered by an elastomeric
membrane that has a built in anti-skid surface. The Ramp is also
hermetically sealed to prevent the ingress of extraneous matter. The ramp
proposed for use in the highway only moves a fraction of the amount seen in
the film and will be completely safe for all vehicular traffic, including
motor-cycles. I will be pleased to send you further information, early in
the New Year, but having been a motor-cyclist myself for many years and a
cyclist I am fully alive to all the potential problems and I would not
propose any device that would endanger these groups.

Thank you for your email. I wish you a Happy Christmas."

"The ramp is silent, comfortable and safe for vehicles," Mr Hughes said.


it's a metal plate. no traction for a bike; especially when wet. Any flexible cover for it will eventually deteriorate and we all know how quickly road departments are to fix such things.
