NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION. NOT A FAILURE BUT A SAFETY PREVENTION MEASURE 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS 1. EVENT: WHEN BACKING UP THE VEHICLE RUNS ON BATTERY POWER-HENCE IT IS SILENT WHEN BACKING UP. THE VEHICLE IN BUSY PARKING LOTS (WALMART) GOES UNNOTICED. 2. FAILURE: I HAVE SURPRISED PEOPLE WHO ARE DISTRACTED AND DON'T NOTICE ME UNTIL THEY NEARLY WALK INTO THE SIDE OF THE VEHICLE. THEY DON'T HEAR THE CAR. 3. FAILURE CORRECTION: A BACK-UP WARNING DEVICE SHOULD BE INSTALLED TO ALERT PEDESTRIANS (BLIND FOLKS, NEIGHBORHOOD KIDS, PETS, ETC) OF A SILENT, BACKWARD MOVING VEHICLE APPROACHING. THERE IS SEVERAL BLIND SPOTS INHERENT TO THE PRIUS WHEN BACKING. HELPING OTHERS TO NOTICE YOU SEEMS LIKE "AN OUNCE OF PROTECTION THAT IS A POUND OF CURE" THAT IS MEASURED IN A SAVED LIFE OR CRIPPLING INJURY.
