Sounds and blind pedestrians. Hope not in Europe

Sounds and blind pedestrians. Hope not in Europe

FYI http://detnews.com/article/20101217/AUTO01/12170344/1148/

IOW EV:s need a "Beep! Beep! Beep!" whenever they are driven slowly. That's like 1600 laws where people driving cars needed a person running in front of the vehicle with red flag.

I hope European version doesn't have that noisemaker. If it does and I buy it, first thing I will do is use wire cutters to disable that system.

I wonder what that means to Roadsters already sold. Or MiEV:s or any other car with silent engines.

Teo;
Cardboard ones would wear out too fast. Have to be special carbon fibre cards, I guess.

I think we're overlooking the simple and obvious solution:
We need the air horn that the Mask used in the movie. Blow peds outta the way with just sound.
