Fake car noises legislation

Recommended Posts

This is so lame , but the new horses just don't clop like they should. Actually it will be hilarious listening to what tradies select for their big utes, let alone granny.

"
The long-delayed rules, which were first demanded by Congress in 2010, require automakers like Tesla Inc, Nissan Motor Co and General Motors Co to add sounds to vehicles when they are moving at speeds of up to 18.6 miles per hour (30 kph) to help prevent injuries among pedestrians, cyclists and the blind."

I thought it was about some cars now playing noises through the car speakers to make better vroom noises for the occupants!

I can’t decide, F35 with afterburner, steam train, the Batmobile, a machine gun,  but I think the sound of fingernails across the blackboard...

Sorry, the youngsters wouldn’t know what that sounds like 🤣

This is the stupidest thing.

when riding my bike a tesla makes as much noise as a Honda moving up behind.   Wind noise and tyre noise make enough racket, most modern cars at modest speeds have essentially silent engines.

one of the great possibilities of electric cars is less noise pollution in cities, open piped Harleys notwithstanding.  Actively reversing that with a cacophony of fake noises is a backwards step.

What I understand from the “fake noise” proposal is that it is to make pedestrians aware of oncoming vehicles travelling below 30kph, not other vehicles.

School zones beware !

That would attract a lot of kiddies. Or is that the plan?
