Electric and Hybrid Cars

Electric cars are quiet. Don’t they pose a traffic hazard if they can’t be heard on the road?

Just like a cyclist, at low speeds the driver of an electric car needs to be extra careful, because the noise of the engine is very low. At higher speeds the sound of the tires is clearly audible – even in city traffic. It's still a great advantage and reduces noise pollution, especially in cities.
