Survey: Should Hybrids Be Made Noisier?


We recently learned that "A bill intended to protect blind people and other pedestrians from the dangers posed by quiet cars will be introduced in Congress.

So hybrids are too quiet and will be required to have boom boxes playing loud music or baseball cards in the spokes.
