Global Automakers submitted comments with regard to NHTSA’s July 12, 2011 notice of intent to prepare an environmental assessment on pedestrian safety. This initiative relates to the planned NHTSA rulemaking to establish a standard requiring that electric and hybrid vehicles be equipped with a pedestrian alert sound system that would activate in certain vehicle operating conditions. The purpose of this would be to aid visually impaired and other pedestrians in detecting the presence, direction, location, and operation of those vehicles.
