power-generate speed bump
power-generate speed bump

When the car pass by the bump, the sound it makes will alarm the drivers. However, the kinetic energy of the mobiles are wasted. What is more, the energy also injure the bump while it moves with hot it generates. Why not gather the energy? The weight of the car push the bump a little down to transform this energy into kinetic energy. The lower speed of the car, the more bump will be pushed down, the less jolt it causes. The faster the car moves, the less bump will be pushed down, and the more bump will barricade the car.
