Like when we put playing cards in the spokes of our bicycles…
Some commercials have them silent or making noise by the driver’s choice.
Yep, they’re too quiet. But on the plus side, they catch fire once in a while. Now that’s excitement.
Thankfully you can count on them to make the standard crunching noises when the autopilot can’t read the roadmap in the Cloud.
Go blpppp and put the wipers on the inside of the windshield!
They talked about putting some type of noise maker on electric cars to help blind people hear them at intersections!
I didn’t buy a particular car because it had fake shifting noise when the transmission was a CVT.

. . . and jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights . . .
WHERE are our flying cars?
Engine noise has been added to some sports cars to give them more of a rumble because today’s smaller engines don’t sound as satisfying as the old V8s.
baseball cards in the spokes?
I’ve always thought cars should come with two horns. The normal loud one for those “Oh (insert bad word here)!” moments and another one that sounds like the Roadrunner. Just a non-aggressive “meep meep” to let someone know that the light has changed or “Excuse me but must you walk down the center of this lane in the parking lot?” That actually happened to me and a few friends walking through a parking lot. We didn’t know a Prius was right behind us trying to get by until she stuck her head out the window and said “Excuse me!.”
No problem.. The people buying EVs are blind too.
The sound of silence….
Is there a giant Vape device that will emit bluish or black mist out the back to make me not miss my payed-for fossil fuel burner?
The Prius is a hybrid, not fully electric.
The sound of one hand clapping and an electric car are one.
Even if they were giving away EV’s, many men would fight them,because boys like noise.
I remember at college a fellow student had a Japanese car that talked to you, “your lights are on”, fasten seat belts ,and a lot of voice messages. I guess that did not go over very well!
Okay, that’s kind of clever, for a change.
