Vinyl Record Meets Road Printer Friendly Version
Some highways in the US have a warning patch on the shoulder. It is a corrugated surface that vibrates the vehicle when the tires roll over - it makes a sound too. What if a modified 'corrugated' surface was placed on the road. This surface would have been carved using a special computer controlled machine, essentially 'Laying Down a Track' similar to the old Vinyl Records. The computer would use the average speed of the highway/road to lenghten or shorten the track to make the car hear it clearly.
Reward: Imagine having a welcome message on roads leading into a town/city. Off ramps could be announced.

Cork Screw Brake Cooling Printer Friendly Version
Well in the mountains or in places where the brakes are used very often, the brakes get very hot causing the brakes to fail. Well how about if a rim was designed in a spiral form to "pull" the air toward the inner rim (where the brakes are located) and would constantly keep the brakes cool.
Reward: These rims on my car

Emergency Vehicle Audio Mute Printer Friendly Version
I thought that it might be a good idea that all emergency vehicles (police/fire/ambulance) should be fitted with an encrypted transmitter that mutes audio devices in surrounding cars when close. So receiving triggers are built into car audio devices and personal ones such as iPODs that mute when emergency services are close. For example if a police chase is taking place nearby and person on a push bike for example is being deafened by their personal audio device it gets muted so they hear the siren...and dont cross roads etc...
Reward: Just high level recognition of me if this is a good idea and works...lol
