Rule on minimum sound requirements for hybrid and electric vehicles
As required by the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act of 2010, the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that hybrid and electric vehicles meet minimum sound standards in order to help make pedestrians more aware of the approaching vehicles. The public will have 60 days to submit comments on the proposed rule.
