Toyota Prius driven below 30mph, in a town center. Ohh that was not good .
That has been mooted. I must admit I have had a fright when shoulder checking and realising there was a hybrid coming up. Proves the worth of the check though, too easy to rely on tyre or engine noise.They should use some of the electric to make a Ferarri like engine noise keyed on the throttle.
That'd confuse people.
Joking aside, in Zermatt ( a posh ski resort) cars are banned, but electric taxis (basically mini moke style Spectre underground base runabouts) are allowed, and do indeed have bells fitted - sleigh bell style.I think Boris planned to insist hybrid or electric cars in London had some form of noise maker attached to warn cyclists blind pedestrians etc.
In certain circumstancesWe are touting vehicle noise pollution as a good thing?
An elderly neighbour of mine has said exactly this to me - that cycles are often "silent streaks", especially now that many cyclists go so fast. She's pretty spry and used to cycle herself.It is also theoretically why cycles spook people as well
Exactly! Some people are obviously using "common sense" and "taking responsbility for their own actions" ***.
