Too bad google can't translate that into "squirrel", because (don't worry, there's a happy ending) I almost squashed one as I was out on Saturday night, he just stood in the road and stared at me. I'd been driving about 25 with the top off and I was revelling in the silence. I didn't actually think to honk the horn... Anyway I made a complete stop; there was no other trafic. I just yelled at the little guy and he moved. But clearly he hadn't heard me. Around our area there are a lot of squirrels and enough deer that it is a problem so we'll have to be careful about that...
I almost hit a guy down who ran into the street with his head turned the other way, talking to friends. I know he didn't hear me, because when I swerved around him he looked at me and jumped like he'd seen a ghost. The street was exceptionally clean and smooth.
Squirrels think that Roadster's are awesome. Was he holding a pen and a picture of the roadster? Did he have a camera with him?
Driving out of my neighbourhood, I've actually had to sound the horn to shift birds off the road & out of the way...it's kind of surreal...
Birds, squirrels, and distracted pedestrians... I've had similar experiences driving my ICE vehicle (and riding my bicycle for that matter). Not sure these occurances are unique to EVs.
Is that because of the squirrel-cage motor?
Which insurance company was it that showed the commercial where the squirrels were purposely running in front of the cars to make them crash? They seem to act that way on my driveway no matter what I'm driving.
Actually, it's a good thing with deer. See EV versus ICE: Deer in the Headlights
But with better tires:
