The government has insisted that all new electric cars have a diesel or petrol engine fitted in them so that other road users and pedestrians can hear them.
The government has also asked that the cars be fitted with an exhaust that emits standard emission poisoning carbon products so that blind people can smell the cars coming as well.
Local petrol head, Peter Thape has never truly embraced the idea of electric vehicles, but he has suggested that the electric battery could be used to power the indicators, and the screen wash pump.
‘These electric vehicles are a nightmare, no noise, no smell, no petrol,’ said Thape.
‘I said they’d never catch on,’ added Thape.
