Singing the road brought to mind the locals

The province of Friesland in the Netherlands were forced to dismantle the musical coverage of the road, set in a local village Jelsum. The reason for this was mass protests of local residents who tune singing roads, according to them, was maddening.

Officials of the Dutch province of Friesland decided quite original to celebrate the appointment of Leeuwarden European capital of culture 2018. They came up with a set in the local village Jelsum music the way that when driving in her car with the help of special marks in the asphalt Friesland performs the national anthem. And if the car passes the singing area at speeds of over 60 km/h, the sound is distorted.

During the download an error has occurred.

According to local authorities, this should motivate drivers to observe the speed limit, after all, to hear the national anthem, they will have to slow down.

Singing road has cost 80 thousand euros, but officials do not think about the locals. The fact that when driving through this area several cars the national anthem of Friesland turned into a cacophony, which the Dutch called psychological torture.

The noise locals had to listen to around the clock. It’s funny that next to the village Jelsum is an air base of the Royal Netherlands air force but the fighters fly only until 17:00, and the cacophony from the road does not stop even at night. According to the accident of the Dutch, the constant noise prevented them from sleeping and literally drove me crazy. In the end, the authorities dismantled a singing road that had not been four days.
