Today, we are discussing about breakers which are not only safe for our cars but also generate electricity using mechanical energy of cars.
Is it possible?
Yes it is , Designer Peter Hughes designed speed bumps which can produce £1 and £3.60 of energy an hour for up to 16 hours a day, or between £5,840 and £21,024 a year. Read More

When cars pass through the top of speed breaker, it push panels go up and down, setting a cog in motion under the road. This then turns a motor,which produces mechanical energy. A steady stream of traffic passing over the bump can generate enough electricity to lighten up our streets.
