Quote from: Michael Rolls on May 13, 2022, 04:23:07 PMyes. My hybrid emits a noise when reversing to warn people but not when going forward under electric power. Scared - not deliberately - a couple of pedestrians not paying attention and despite travelling at about 5 mph at the time, they had no idea that I was there. Do I sound my horn, risking further scaring them?Mike
Quote from: zoony on May 13, 2022, 05:50:33 PMAs I said Mike, a COMPULSORY noise, not up to you when you think you should....which would include going forward OR backward.
Quote from: zoony on May 13, 2022, 03:13:50 PMDoes the panel think that any and all silent vehicles, bikes, e-scooters and now cars, should have a compulsory noise so we can at least hear 'em before they put us in A&E? Please note, I said 'compulsory'..
Quote from: Scrumpy on May 13, 2022, 06:15:34 PMI think all silent vehicles should have some sort of warning that they are moving, either forward or reverse. I also think the pedestrian should be more aware ..Many 'tut tut' a moving vehicle when it is clear that they ( pedestrian) are not paying attention..Some crap drivers out there too..Ignorant regarding people on foot.. Swings and roundabouts..
