Have you ever considered doing a video on pavement grooving? The science behind what makes the pavement make such a high pitched whine as you drive over it, the pros/cons of using longitudinal versus traverse grooving, how the grooves are added during construction, etc.

When I was on a construction site recently (filming for an upcoming video), I noticed the grooves in direction with travel. On-site engineers told me that helps create side-to-side friction, to keep cars from skidding sideways. Pretty cool!
I have not considered that as an idea (yet). Have had on my board an idea to look at grooves that wake up sleeping drivers as they leave the travel lane.

I've been wondering as well what you may have in store with grooves and banking for off ramps. When it comes to those grooves, they certainly make some noise, but do they really slow you down or is that our instincts hitting the breaks? I watch car chase videos and highway patrol officer flies right over those grooves on the side of the road. Banking seems to be dropping these days with lover banking supported by grooves. Maybe the grooves have evolved into parts of the highways. I got a section on 215 W in Vegas between the Airport tunnel and I-15 that makes your tires sound like they're going flat. Maybe the overall topic leads to weather conditions or highway construction overall talking about water run off and a groove mention. www.quora.com/Why-are-lengthwise-grooves-cut-into-highways.
