New electric cars to emit noise to aid safety

And here we go, it's only a matter of time now for electric bikes:

Last weekend I might have experienced the effect of my bike noise as an effective warning. One can never be sure but the first half of our group passed a car that was pulled over on a narrow twisty road and it looked like he was about to pull in front of the second half and stopped mid-move. I can't help but wonder if that would have happened if we were all silent.

BTW, this thread was not meant to be only about "loud pipes save lives" and freeway-only situation.
