    Have the C&U regs been changed to allow for this? I remember it being discussed a while ago but the sticking point was IIRC that only emergency vehicles are allowed to make a noise other than the horn (or 'audible warning of approach')
    50 shades of grey primer....

    I believe that is in progress and the electric cars will make a sort of "white noise" like teh wind in trees (I still prefer the Windy Miller sound)

    It is disconcerting to have a silent vehicle to come quickly in to your immediate senses.

    .ie come close enough that you sense it.

    On the plaza at the Vatican last year the friggin cops came right up behind me and made me jump ! Same as tonite en route to boozer, fecking sitty up BMW electric thing with security markings appeared outta nowhere in to my immediate sensory perimeter and shot past. So I suppose with no warning the feckers can spook ya.

    What about music to your political persuasion!!?? Radiohead for remainers, Gary Glitter Band for liberals, Billy Bragg for new labour, Prodigy for Ukip and the King's of Leon for Tories.

    I nearly got flattened by an electric taxi one of those pious prick things, no noise not even tyre noise, in a built up area with parking on both sides and I was on the pavement when HE came onto the edge of the pavement to go round a parked car and gently brushed my leg, cured my constipation.......

    we spotted the sound issue years ago when they were pushing electric vehicles at goodwood festival of speed.. had all the cars in the FOSTech section in the middle, and had to have a golf cart blaring its horn escorting them through the crowds after the first day, because no-one was getting out their way!!!
