Quick, someone get an LRAD to just give off the Brown Note at 153 dB. "Congratulations, you were speeding. Did baby make boom-boom in him pants?"

/Yes, I know there's no "brown note"
//But the idea is priceless

I heard they tried something like this up at Penn State in the 80's.

They put the rumble strips in spaces to simulate voices saying danger and slow down when you drove over it. Turns out, it just scared the shiat out of people and they usually drove right off the road.

I'm guessing nothing, because most speeders are already driving with their bass amps cranking at 180 dbs and/or their headphones in.
