Generate Energy throgh road bumps.

we are aware of the road bumps..those semicircular arc shaped piece of concrete..now, when vehicles run over it, they exert some force on it..
Now, can we not use that force to convert it into electrical energy..
Imagine zillions of vehicle producing energy daily just by running over bumps..

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
