http://www.chevybolt.org/forum/129-safety-features-technology/5802-low-speed-noise-generator.htmlI find the slow speed artificial "noise" annoying. Is there a way to disable it? I'm guessing this comes from a speaker somewhere that could be clipped, right?
I've been in Law Enforcement for over 2 decades. Have seen and done plenty of fatal accident investigations, watched plenty of cars go to junk yards. I can tell you that at no time have I ever heard of, seen or been trained to look at the fuses of anything. And if you think you can inspect the car after it has been on the wrecker and taken to a holding lot, think chain of custody with evidence .... the car is the evidence. Once it's towed away, you can no longer certify or say what fuse it did or didn't have. Also, for one who follows the litigation as a hobby, I have never seen a payout beyond policy limits .... they just don't go for it. However, my younger brother got sued after he blew a stop sign and T-Boned a lady .... she had a broken leg. He didn't have insurance, the judgement for just medical costs against him was 6 figures. He filed bankruptcy, they had nothing they could take ..... the house had a mortgage, they won't touch a house with a mortgage because in order to take the house they have to first settle the mortgage and they are further limited because you can't deprive a person of adequate housing, so you have to settle the mortgage and still go to court and have hearings on what you have to give them. That's also why we don't seize cars in narcotics busts that are rentals or leases. Just wanted to give you a different perspective on how you might see it happen.
Forget that. I can’t imagine the guilt I’d feel if I thought there was even a chance I might not have hurt or killed someone had I not intentionally disabled a system designed to increase their awareness. No thanks.
and yet, the pedestrian noise maker on EVs has not been made mandatory yet. And only within the last month has Tesla announced that they would start installing them on Model 3s.
