“Singing” the road in the Netherlands stopped

However, the expected effect of the change is not brought — the majority of drivers did not react to the sounds of the anthem, moving with the same speed. If this stretch of road was driving several car – music turned into a terrible cacophony.

The locals rebelled, equating the sounds of the “singing” honey day and night, to “psychological torture.” The authorities had to backtrack and cover that cost 80 thousand euros, was dismantled by the evening of April 10. Just four days after the ceremonial launch into operation. Some are unpatriotic, these Dutch 🙂
