Well once again the news comes out with a story on the tv about Electric/Hybrid cars being dangerous to pedestrians once again. I sent them an nasty gram because it is total BS. I work at a hospital and all the Car vs Pedestrian accidents happen with NOISY cars not Quiet cars.
The problem is what I refer to as Attention Deficit Disorder. Either the driver is not paying attention or the pedestrian is not paying attention or both are not paying attention. It is NOT because the car is quiet. Many modern cars are very very quiet if our standing outside the vehicle. What you hear most is tire noise.
The news station got an ear full this morning.
