    Electric cars are eerily quiet — and US regulators are worried this could make them dangerous

    OMG....damn near pissed my shorts when I saw this story!!

    As it is, car companies can't sell these st00pid cars....now they are going to install speakers that will sound like a flock of geese taking off so pedestrians can hear them coming!! That should really ramp up sales #'s!!!:hello77:

    So, if you are a blind person trying to cross a street, you're all for electric cars being dead silent so that the person has no idea a car is coming his way?

    A sensible solution is for the cars to have a common sound, one all manufactures use, and when the software 'sees' a person or crosswalk ahead, it creates that sound as a warning. Easily done with the present level of computing in these vehicles.

    Hey, I still ride a bicycle for exercise, and sometimes those things will sneak up on me and scare the crap out of me. Normally? I can hear the cars coming up behind me, but electrics can sometimes surprise me when they pass.

    Yes, I think making them make some kind of sound when they go by is a good one.

    Like the automated passenger train that didn’t slow down for the curve in Seattle and killed those people?
