The Association of International Automobile Manufacturers, Inc. (AIAM) applauds the passage of the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act. Earlier this year, AIAM worked with lawmakers, the National Federation of the Blind, the American Council of the Blind, and other auto industry groups on the legislative language that has now passed both Houses of Congress. As hybrid and electric cars have become more widespread, some of our members have anticipated this need and already added sound to these vehicles to enhance pedestrian safety. We look forward to working with the Department of Transportation to develop a workable and effective noise standard for quiet vehicles.
