Although it's a year old, just saw this today. I can't imagine the cost to actually replace even half the highways with solar panels.

When they give me my flying car, they can do whatever they want with all the asphalt. Maybe by then solar will be able to earn it's keep.

dont think it'll be too burnout friendly. leaving tire marks all over solar panel roads might not be such a good thing! :p

I don't think its viable option, salt, sand and hard stops from 80mps anit good on anything that need to scratch free.

I think vertical windmills in the median is a much better idea.
