As if car accidents in Jackson, Hinds County Mississippi and all over the state aren’t bad enough now, car makers are responding to concerns voiced in Japan and the U.S that electric-powered vehicles are dangerous to pedestrians because they are quieter than gasoline-powered automobiles. Data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggest that drivers of hybrid vehicles face an increased risk of being involved in an accident during low-speed actions when the quieter electric motor is in operation. Car makers are experimenting with different types of audible sounds they can add to their hybrid cars. Charles R. “Chuck” Mullins handles car accident cases which cause serious bodily injury.
