    It's a fake engine sound, a horrible one at that. I think all electric cars have to have some sound starting in 2019 for blind people.

    If my test car had sounded like that, I would have never bought the car. That's awful.

    Your car does sound like that, if you tune your AM radio to the lowest setting (drag the slider below the lowest frequency), it will pick up that interference sound from the car. It is really quite a terrible sound.

    Same people who penned that law are also responsible for braille on drive through ATMs.

    I think it's meant for blind people, actually.

    I don't remember seeing braille on drive-thru ATMs, but suspect that the reason you see braille there is because they use the same keys and components that they use for their stand-alone ATMs. It doesn't make sense to manufacture two different sets of keys, one with braille and one without. Also, lets be a little more sensitive to the needs of those less fortunate. I am married to a deaf man and society can be very cruel and indifferent to people with needs for special accommodations.
