SoCal officials to pave over music-making asphalt

LANCASTER, Calif. - Residents of northern Los Angeles County are not grooving to this music.Lancaster city officials said this week that they’re paving over a quarter-mile strip of asphalt grooved to play thewhen auto tires speed over it.
The road was completed this month as part of anfor Honda. It’s engineered to play the overture — also known as the theme to " " — at perfect pitch for motorists driving at 55 mph.
But neighbors aren’t amused. One says thelike a high-pitched drone. Another says it keeps him and his wife up at night.
Lancaster officials plan to pave over the grooves Tuesday.
A thought. If Honda built the road surface, and the only ones who can hear it are Honda drivers... Isn't that like preaching to the choir? I wonder how many people who read the news release are going to move to California and buy a Honda just so they too can hear the Lone Ranger riding again?
