President Obama Signs Bill Requiring Electric Cars Add Safety Sound
Washington — President Barack Obama signed into law Tuesday a bill that will require automakers to add sounds to quiet cars that would help alert the blind and other pedestrians.
Last month, Congress voted to require federal safety regulators to set minimum sound levels from electric and gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles. It's the first piece of auto safety legislation to become law since Obama took office in 2009.
Several other safety bills proposed in the wake of Toyota Motor Corp.'s recalls over sudden acceleration have been stalled.
