Electric scooters are all the rage many cities the world. The electric-powered two-wheelers are helping people nimbly zip traffic and effortlessly get town. However, they have also brought problems and safety concerns. Many scooter riders disregard road regulations, ignore traffic lights and illegally ride sidewalks. A major scooter manufacturer has started selling a speaker that will alert pedestrians and other road users the scooter's presence. Segway is marketing a new speaker accessory that can add V12 engine noises to its scooters. Alternatively, the user can plug their music device and the speaker will boom the rider's favourite tunes.

Segway's $150 Ninebot Engine Speaker can play music or revved sports car sounds 23 hours when fully charged. The speaker syncs the scooter's accelerator, so the faster the vehicle goes, the louder the speaker's rev sounds are. Segway said its engine speaker acts as a continuous warning to anyone earshot that the rider is approaching. Many road safety analysts believe the speaker could reduce the number collisions scooter riders and pedestrians. However, critics are concerned an increase noise pollution. They say the beauty electric engines is their silence. They believe a simple beeping sound is sufficient to alert other road users and a V12 sound is overkill.
