Silence is not necessarily golden

You drive a hybrid or totally electric car and deserve kudos for helping with the ecology. Not to mention helping your own pocket book. However, you have discovered that cars turn in front of you, and people walk across the road in front of you. They cannot hear you. Unless they looked they don’t know you are around. Put a radio or cell phone in the picture and you might as well be on Mars. Double your vigilance particularly in school zones.
