Highway energy collection devices

Interesting approach to energy generation/collection. The force created from vehicles driving over a device generates electricity.

There are some interesting remarks in the comments, though, about it actually making the vehicles that drive over it less efficient. That energy needs to come from somewhere… The comments do discuss the possibility of installing it in areas where speed needs to be scrubbed anyways.
