Even today in any busy area there are so many such beepers and other noise pollution, my skepticism leads me to believe most sounds are just automatically tuned out, or masked by ear pods tuned to some favorite news or music channel....


I'd say most people would be *aware* of the backup beeper even if they weren't "paying attention". Seems to me that's the goal actually.

On the other hand I've noticed a certain behavior many, many times over the years -- people who hear the beep and then change course to walk deliberately into the backup path of the vehicle. I guess it's human nature, something along the lines of "you're not the boss of me", or they feel I'm trying to gain some form of entitlement with my presumptuous little beeper. But at least they are aware, even if it goads them into being jerks. :lol:

Since this follows my post, shall I assume you're referring to it? Speak your mind.
