Hybrid Vehicles, A Threat to Cyclists and Pedestrians?
To quote the report:
"This study found that pedestrian and bicyclist crashes involving both HEVs [hybrid electric vehicles] and ICE [internal combustion engine] vehicles commonly occurred on roadways, in zones with low speed limits, during daytime and in clear weather, with higher incidence rates for HEVs when compared to ICE vehicles."
"What's the solution? The Nissan Leaf may be pointing the way with an artificial sound system that alerts other road users to the car's presence."
