POLL: Should an electric car be quieter or noisier?

with one comment

At ZAP we are continually educating people about the many benefits of all-electric vehicles, chiefly that they’re quieter than internal combustion. Now we are reading that blind activists are lobbying for a law that electric and hybrid cars must make more noise. The US Senate has unanimously passed a bill to study if electric and hybrid cars are unsafe to the blind and pedestrians because they are so quiet. But not all blind people agree with this statement, according to “It would be better for everyone if all the cars were quieter,” says blind advocate Brian Bushway. Watch the video above to see how much noise electric cars make, and please take our poll whether you think they should make more noise. InsideLine
