Re: How to turn off back up (reverse) beeping sound?

You know, I can't believe how we can find so many people that seem to demand customizing every little thing in their life>>> I wouldn't want to be a barista at Starbucks with this person. So, put up with the very good safety equipment that most cars don't even have...

Low speed sounds required for all Electrics:

“The new rule requires all newly manufactured electric vehicles 10,000 pounds or less to make an audible noise when traveling forward or in reverse at speeds 19 mph or less. NHTSA says the sound alert is not required at higher speeds because other factors, such as tire and wind noise, “provide adequate audible warning to pedestrians.” It doesn’t explain what kind of alert automakers use, so whether it’s a fake engine noise or a “beeping” noise will be up the manufacturers of electric vehicles.”

The problem is the forward sound has what to me sounds like metal grinding on metal, which makes me think the brakes are bad even when they aren't. If I could change the sound slightly, then it wouldn't be an issue, but until I can, I will use LeafSpy to shut it off.

Honestly, they don't pay attention to gas powered vehicles either, so what difference does it really make? The only people that I can see being affected are those pedestrians that have limited to no vision and really you should be watching out for them no matter what vehicle you drive anyway because you can see them, they can't necessarily see you and you shouldn't assume that they can hear you either, for all you know they could be deaf as well.
