In Car Signs Printer Friendly Version
Signs at the roadside could eventually be done away with if a transmitter were to replace them. This could be picked up by a micro chip receiver built into cars. The information could be displayed or read out by a computerised voice. For instance you have just entered a 40 MPH zone.
This could be encouraged by the friend of the earth groups, think of the tons of materials that could be done away with. Also when the signs needed updating this would be a simple download process from the traffic authorities.
Reward: No more ugly signs spoiling our environment.

Easy Oil Change Printer Friendly Version
One of my pet peeves in changing oil is that if you aren't careful, warm (if not hot) oil will run all over your hands. Further, almost always, I lose the bolt in the bottom of the oil bucket.
Here's my idea. Cars come equipped with the oil pan bolt... the bolt is removed... BUT NOTHING COMES OUT YET! Why? Because there is another step.
The oil changer then takes a wrench, after removing the bolt, and turns a nut (or for that matter, uses his hand to lift a lever, turn a knob, etc.), and THEN the oil comes out.
This gives double protection against a leak... and it makes oil changes much cleaner.
Reward: A Rolls Royce equipped thusly--ha!

Transparent Vehicles Printer Friendly Version
I wish they make all the automobiles, planes, trains all transparent. The production cost will be cheap because the whole body could be moulded from one big plastic rather than going for aluminium or steel.
Just imagine the view from a trasparent airplane it will be great, and the pilots will know what's happening in the passenger car. Some areas should be covered like bathrooms and some other places etc. This is quite a weird idea, many people prefer privacy but this is for those who don't.
Reward: free travel passes
