The noise from the tires is already much louder than the engine noise in many modern gasoline cars. When I am out walking I often hear the tire noise without ever hearing the engine of cars that are close.

Quality tires don't have that problem.

ALL tires make noise above a certain speed (25mph) and above 30mph you have wind noise.

This law is for speeds below that range where tires make (no) noise ^^

I wasn't suggesting there is NO sound. I was saying, the cheapies are the ones that make loud brown noise when a car is cruising by at neighborhood speeds. Higher end tires are typically much quieter.

My point was that there is no perceivable sound, especially in winter (where tires are harder) and when it is windy, I experience 2 hybrid cars in my street nearly daily, you can't hear them, flat out. Ok, the speed limit here is 30km/h , at that speed all I hear is a faint "shhhhh" sound from the tires when the car is passing me, that is. Not before, and not after.

Also tire noise really depends on the road surface too.... anyway, point is this law is about some very real problem with e-cars. They are ninjas and that isn't meant jokingly.

If only people had holes in their head that would allow light to be transformed into a visual image within their brains, then these cars wouldn't be such a problem.

I know right? Blind/visually-impaired people should never be allowed in public. It's insanity! Don't worry. The Donald will fix this...

Why not just include a sensor that turns the noise on or honks or what have you when it detects a pedestrian on the road? I think one of the big draws of electricars is their silence. They're the ninjas of cars.

Shhh

Or, you know, the driver could just stick his/her head out the window and go "vroom vroom".

Quality tires don't have that problem. It's the cheap, garbage tires that are typically included with a car that are loud and annoying.

I don't think "honking" or something like that would be the appropriate solution either. The problem isn't pedestrians in the road, it's when pedestrians are alongside the road, either attempting to cross, or just walking alongside. You want to be able to hear oncoming vehicles around you, especially for visually impaired individuals.

What about something like the kids used to do in the olden days with playing cards in the spokes of their bicycles?

Yeah I don't think having them "make a noise" 100% of the time is the point of such a car.. in fact I can already see the problems, resonating sounds from electric cars driving people mad at night.. no thanks.

And honking at night in a city, would be a quick way to get angry neighbors throwing shit at you. Or bricks...
