Perhaps, then, the solution is to build much larger rooftops? And much closer to the ground!

Since I hate driving in the rain, or with the sun in my face, I think we should cover all our highways with roofs and then cover the roofs with solar panels.

Roofs. Roofs. Say that a few times. It's a funny word. Like flammable. I can't stop saying it.

Rolling code alone doesn't address it. The length of the code is key. A MARCSTAR document from 1997 cites the code as 40 bits, over 1 trillion possibilities. If you could transmit 10,000 tries per second, it would take over 3 years to try all the possibilities. Even if you got lucky and hit the right code in the first 1% of attempts, it would still take almost 2 weeks of trying.
