Would it be possible to install solar panels on car roofs to charge electric and hybrid batteries while driving??? I always get annoyed when see state patrol cars that just drive for hours on the highway just in case or when they park for a speed trap when they could be driving a electric hybrid that charges and runs off the sun since they are one the open sunny road anyways. we'd be able to park our car in the lot during work and it would be charged when we're ready to leave, or while it's sitting in the drive way. I'm extremely interested in the new electric ford focus but it wouldnt allow for long road trips or vacations where there are no charging stations, this would eliminate or lessen that need.
Another idea would be to direct air flow while driving onto small wind generators to also create additional electricity. I just dont like the idea of only being able to drive less then 100 miles and get stuck somewhere with no outlet.
