Default How to turn off the reversing noise ROADSTER DX-8

Hi everyone I'm hoping someone can help me. I am 48 and a mobility scooter
user due to Spina bifida. My problem is that I would like to stop the scooter
from making the beeping noise when I am reversing. The scooter is a VAN OS
MEDICAL ROADSTER DX-8.

Is not the reversing noise there for persons like myself who are blind and
might not know you were reversing?

Sorry but I don't get it. its a safety feature and we have just won the
right to get all electric vehicles given a sound which cannot be turned off.

His doesnít do that going forwards.

And big dogs for that matter.

FFS are we going to get sound pollution from all the electric cars
reversing in/out of driveways at silly o'clock every day?

No they are going to make a noise when moving in either direction, just
like cars with engines do.

I have no idea what the deaf blind are going to do when stupid drivers
hit them.

If you can find the actual sounder you could simply snip one of the
wires (or fit a switch), then tape up the end so it doesn't short on
anything. The sounder is likely to be a little round thing somewhere
under a panel at the back. Get someone to find it by listening.

I've looked through the user manual and can't find anything. The
maintenance manual I can't find on line.

Thjis may help you.

Many years ago in 'studio sound' anmd umnterview with a famnout
guitarist took place.
"And why do you run your loudpeaker cabinets with no grilles? Is it to
get a specuially opure sound?"

"Nah: It's so I can kick the ****ing cones in when they start buzzing"


I suggest you kick the ****ing bleeper in

survival, to indulging in navel gazing and faux moral investigations
into what the world ought to be, whilst we fail utterly to deal with
what it actually is.

Probably the same as they do now. They get hurt.


They are not going to see or hear you no matter how many warning lights
or buzzers you fit to a car.

Yes I checked the manual as well, nothing much on electrics.
Trouble could be the bleeper also doubles as the horn.

Yes but people that know how to drive take these things into account,
the stupid don't.

IIRC about 10% of drivers are deaf but some people still think sounding
horns will get a reaction from everyone.
