Hey Brian, How about letting drivers customize the sound, as I blogged about here (http://www.examiner.com/article/hey-you-loser) a couple of years ago.

I have a serious comment that I'd like to send to this National Highway Transportation Safety Administration study. Do you know how I can submit such feedback to them? In particular, I want to recommend to them that they not make recommendations not specific to EVs or hybrids, but to any vehicles that make less than so-and-so much sound volume at low speed, regardless of why that may be the case.

(Oop, one too many "not"s in there: "... that they make recommendations not specific to...")

Glass packs on a big block Chevy. Or much easier, just get rid of EVs and hybrids.

The syncopated clops of horse shoes hitting the ground. At 4 mph and below the gait would be a walk. At speeds from 5 mph to 10 mph the sound should transition to a trot. From 10 mph to 17 mph it should be a canter, and speeds from 18 mph to 30 mph the sound should be a gallop. In this way, sight-impaired people will know how fast a vehicle is approaching so they can adjust accordingly.

Yes!!! You hit the nail on the head – my thoughts exactly! We can hack the car and install the Clipity Clop (or whatever) sound so “Blind” people will know WHO is approaching – by the sound.

The sound of 2 coconut halves clip-clopping might be better.
