Hybrid Cars Pose New Danger: Proof Global Warming Does Kill

Sleigh bells.

That's what they do in Zermatt Switzerland where all the cars are electric, and pedestrians got hit regularly until they added the bells.

This actually happened to me.
I walked out behind my truck into the street without looking and almost got squashed by an electric Honda. I never heard a thing and it missed me by inches.

People forget how quiet modern cars are.

In the early 90's, I used to have a 1968 mustang ragtop. Even with mufflers & whatnot, it emitted a loud rumble when idling, much like a Chris Craft. On the road, it was more of a muted roar.

My wife's car, OTOH, was a modern 4 door sedan, and was so quiet that on several occassions, I tried to start an already running engine.
