    And while the zero-emission cars, are a big hit with environmentalists, the Canadian Federation of the Blind says the cars are a hazard for those who can’t see.

    “For us, they are invisible,” Mary Ellen Gabias, the federation’s vice-president, told CBC News this week.

    Think about that statement for a second.
