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.

It seems there is an action in the Federal Register to address this problem.
