Michigan has a road where you can defy gravity and your car will roll uphill. Known as “Gravity Hills” they are hills where gravity seems to work in reverse. Near the town of Rose City, there is a road where you can stop and put your car in neutral, and you will swear you are rolling uphill. I had to check out the gravity hill on Reasner Road northeast of Rose City. I was not sure what part of the road the hill was on until I came near the end of the road, and saw a sign that said ” Do Not Stop, Do Not Go Backwards” well they put up a sign telling someone not to do it, I could not resist the temptation of going to jail just to try out the gravity hill. I figure the deer on the side of the road would not mind either, so I put the jeep in neutral, and it sure felt like I was going uphill. Now I know gravity does not work backward, and its more of an optical illusion, but it sure seemed like I broke Issac Newtons Laws.
I can’t tell you to do it, because you are probably breaking some sort of motor vehicle law, but I thought I would share my experience with you, I hope there is wifi in jail if they come to arrest me so I can keep posting more pics.
P.S. If you do attempt to defy gravity. I recommend you turn your car around so you are at the bottom of the hill and then put it in neutral so you are rolling forward.
