Pervious Pavement

It's raining today.  But this is pretty neat:

There are tons of videos out there about pervious/porous road materials.  And a lot of them show concrete mixer trucks pouring water onto the test pavement to show how quickly the water disappears.

It would be really cool to ride down the street and not need fenders or worry as much about sliding.  This video is great too, it shows the difference between driving on current road materials and the experimental one during a rain storm.  I would bike on it.
