How many blind people are injured or killed by being struck by a car?

When I decelerate in my F150 4x4, I have my foot off the gas and it's silent too. I can't wait to see the dB level they set so I can test my truck.

Not to mention non hybrid or electrics like the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry, which even as a completely gas car is almost silent until it gets right up on you.
