I just read an article about a campaign to start putting solar panels on roadways. Here's the link: https://arstechnica.com/science/201...ments=1&vs=b

Regardless of how good or bad of an idea it is, it looks like it would be a danger to motorcycles as far as traction goes, especially when the road gets wet. I probably should get an account over at Ars Technica just so I can post a response on this subject - but it would likely be lost in the noise, since I see there there are already 179 replies (at the time of this post). At least others have already noted the "slip hazard".
