My 2012 Plug-in Prius already does this. It is a strange, UFO-like noise :-). I believe all current Prius models have it.

Seems to me the cheapest solution is to glue old playing cards to the tire rims so that they smack something as the wheel turns. A variation of this worked on my bike when I was a kid. ...although I would still run into people occasionally ;-)

Bert, you're absolutely correct. And re-reading the NHTSA reduction estimate quote, they see the reduction over the life of the various models... which ends up being a very small number on a year-by-year basis.
