From Silicon Graybeard, the "Making Cars Noisier Act Of 2010":
In 2010, the US Congress acted on a problem that very few of us knew existed: electric cars are too quiet, especially at low speeds, and therefore pedestrians and bicyclists are more likely to get hit by an electric car. The answer? Make electric cars noisier. That raises the questions of exactly how noisy and exactly what kinds of noise. After years of study, it appears they've started ruling on just how to fix this....
This sounds like a job for The Federal Government!
|Barring personal tragedy, if you're old enough to read this, you'll probably see it in your lifetime.|
And if we're voting, I want my EV to sound like the old TV Batmobile's jet engine, complete with flames from the tail exhaust every time I accelerate. If it can use spotted owl carcasses, diesel fuel, the dirtiest crude oil, high-sulfur coal, or nuclear power for that effect, bonus points.
So much for zero emissions.
"Green" communists' heads exploding: just a serendipitous cherry on that cake.
