Hybrids and Biking
Advocates for the blind are concerned by the dangers that hybrid cars pose to the visually impared.
There has been quite a hub-bub about the dangers of hybrids because they are more quiet than internal combustion motivated vehicles. The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) naturally takes these matters quite seriously and in the Spring of 2007 approached SAE International about the problem.
After only one, relatively short session with my bicycle last weekend, I have the same concerns for bikers and children.
