A solution in search of a statistically relevant problem? There are also some 
NHTSA guidelines for local governments that offer reasonable technical 
solutions for urban roadways. Perhaps the more workable and useful solution 
would be an expansion of the current automotive pedestrian collision sensor 
systems requirements.

Noise pollution and ambient urban sound levels are statistically important 
public health problems.

Subject: [PSES] Minimum Sound Requirements

A few years ago on this forum we discussed something about the quiet nature of 
electric and hybrid vehicles and how this can be a hazard for pedestrians.  It 
seems there is an action in the Federal Register to address this problem.

Notification Number: USA/777/Rev.1 (United States of America)
Date Issued: 3/2/2018
Products: Hybrid and electric vehicles
Title: Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Minimum Sound Requirements for 
Hybrid and Electric Vehicles
