I came across this story on Wired today. It's about the lack of noise created by Hybrids and Electric cars being very dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians, especially blind people. The vehicles are so quiet they're difficult to detect. There's a bill before Congress suggesting that these cars should be creating an artificial sound/noise. Unintended consequences indeed.
