It was my idea first!

When electric/hybrid cars first started appearing, I said they would have to make them artificially noisy, so they wouldn’t increase the chance of road accidents.

Seems Lotus agrees with me: The Independent: Introducing the hybrid you can hear

“Lotus is developing technology that will put the roar of the traditional combustion engine under the hoods of eco-friendly vehicles, in an attempt to make the quiet cars safer for unsuspecting pedestrians – particularly the blind – and cyclists.”
